I got this totally awesome book at the library last week. It’s called Brian’s Winter. It’s about a boy who is flying over a wintery landscape and the pilot of the helicopter just goes pflt….dead!!! The controls give way and the helicopter goes down and down. Luckily,the helicopter’s safety kit has all the stuff he needs to survive in the wintery woods. Eventually,he finds a small line on the hill not very far away and he gets back home!!! But,while he was living there,he had to eat rabbits, foolbirds, deer, and moose.He uses stones and sticks to make arrows,and he uses the hides of the animals as snowshoes, jumpers,and boots. Sure, they look dumb, but they sure keep him warm.
