Feb 18, Mackenzie Bakker rated it really liked it. Being the first book in it's series, Lost in the Barrens sets such a high standard it seems like the other books in this set are doomed to fall short. Farley Mowat has done well in this book in capturing the hardships of survival in the arctic plains of Canada. In this page turner, you will read about the trials that a pair of boys must go through after their canoe is wrecked on a river far north in Canada's tundra.

Jamie MaCnair, a Canadian born in Toronto, lives with his uncle Angus on the s Being the first book in it's series, Lost in the Barrens sets such a high standard it seems like the other books in this set are doomed to fall short. Jamie MaCnair, a Canadian born in Toronto, lives with his uncle Angus on the shores of a lake far north of Manitoba after his parents tragic car accident.

Awasin, Jamie's best friend, is a Cree boy who lives near the Macnairs in a village, where he is the Chiefs son. While their fathers are away, they are asked for help from another Indian band farther north then even them, who suffer from starvation after not being able to hunt enough deer to support themselves. The two teens head off to help with a hunt, but find themselves with their canoe wrecked and hundreds of miles from help, with winter fast-approaching.

Jamie and Awasin must feed, cloth, shelter and protect themselves during the brutal arctic winter with not much more than a rifle, axe, rope and frying pan. Farley Mowat has written a masterpiece in this exciting book. Anyone who likes to read about adventure, danger and risk will find this one hard to put down!

Before winter came they had a short period of time making a cabin and get food and half way through the winter there was a blizzard that made them home sick and after it ended they decided to go to the others camp witch was weeks away right when they were about to turn around they found a Eskimo that helped them get home. I know Farley Mowat more from his nonfiction books, particularly Never Cry Wolf, but this is a fictional novel, essentially a young adult novel.

Two boys, a white boy and a Native American who are fast friends are lost in the barren northlands of Canada and must prepare for winter on their own. There are a lot of interesting details about how the boys survive, and nice touches of mystery like the discovery of Viking ruins. A really enjoyable tale. I read this as a youngster in Junior High School.

It had been recommended to me by my older brother, strange as it was that I would read a book he had read. It's a wonderful "Coming of Age" tale full of danger, adventure, and friendship, set in the wilds of North East Canada and Western Alaska. For me, it was everything Call of the Wild by Jack London turned out to be, and better, since I was the same age as the characters in the book. Farley Mowat has a wonderful sense of touch and there are me I read this as a youngster in Junior High School.

Farley Mowat has a wonderful sense of touch and there are messages in this book about getting along, racism and how to handle it, and how to be someone's friend. I haven't bumped into the same feelings this book inspired until last year when I read Allen Steele 's Coyote. I'd rank it with "The Last of the Mowhicans. View 1 comment. Jun 06, Kevin Mattis rated it really liked it. The character strength for the main character is that he is courageous. The reason for that is because his friend and himself had to spend a winter in Eskimo territory.

Still my favorite book! As I read this book I updated my sister constantly with what was befalling the boys on their travels, much to her disdain.

She also didn't understand why I was reading this novel on a beach in the summer. When I saw this book in the library I believed I was in the sci-fi section and I thought it was post-apocalyptic. Then I read it was about two teenager boys who get lost in the wilderness and have to survive. Ye As I read this book I updated my sister constantly with what was befalling the boys on their travels, much to her disdain.

Yes, it's like freakin' Hatchet! But what's different about this novel is the boys are lost far far up North in the winter and start out with more survival skills. And yes, unlike Hatchet, I realize the characters don't really have depth - the novel is not a metaphor, it's not meant to show you the psychological harm being lost does to you, it's not even technically for adults.

But why was it awesome? Because it's two guys surviving against all odds in the wilderness. Every ten minutes I was saying, "Kait! Guess what's happening now Despite the pain and boredom and strife the boys went through, this book makes me want to go up North. But maybe I'm just batshit crazy. I'm going to buy this book and give it to my future kids. I would have loved it as a child. This was okay.

I never read it as a kid and probably would have enjoyed it more at that time. I found Jamie to be kind of an annoying character, pushing his wiser friend to break the rules and do stupid things. Some of the hunting scenes were needlessly emotional e.

I just read The Hunger Games and though there was a lot of hunting in that one too, the author tells rather than shows. I liked all the inventiveness and survival This was okay. I liked all the inventiveness and survival description.

Of course, there was some sexism things described as "women's work" etc and it utterly failed the Bechdel test. But what can one expect with a typical Boys' Own Adventure type story from ? May 24, Bart Breen rated it it was amazing.
