Out of the Wilderness

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Survival. It makes for exciting TV, but all Josh wants a life that passes for normal. A real house, not a cabin in the woods. Hockey, not hunting to put food on the table. Girls. But his half-brother, Nathan, wants to prove himself in the Alaska wilderness, and their father won’t let him do it alone. Josh’s prospects brighten when an intriguing girl visits remote Willow Creek, but Shannon is entranced with his brother. As Nathan’s behavior grows stranger—and more dangerous—Josh confronts the dark side of what it means to be his brother’s keeper. “…[A] chilling winter’s tale.” Publisher’s Weekly

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 01, 1999 – Civilization might look pretty good to readers after they share Josh's experience living in the Alaskan wilderness inside a 10 x 20 cabin with his father and older half-brother, Nathan. Josh, who would be a freshman in high school, longs for the old days when he played on a hockey team and was surrounded by friends. Josh's father, however, is content to stay in the wilderness making up lost time with his older son. Meanwhile, Nathan, an avid nature enthusiast, strives to become self-sufficient by living without "all things manmade." The risks he takes outdoors on his own nearly cost him his life. In this chilling winter's tale, Vanasse (A Distant Enemy) covers the three classic conflicts: man against nature, man against man and man against himself; but events overshadow the characterizations, leaving her message muddied and no resolution for Josh and his family. Those who find Nathan's extremism as annoying as his father's insensitivity to his younger son's needs may still appreciate the beauty and danger of the landscape. Yet the irony, that Nathan feels a "kinship" with the very bear who nearly destroy him, is diluted here. For all of Nathan's obsession with his surroundings and Josh's remark that "the wilderness would be with him always," young nature lovers are rarely allowed to experience the scenic grandeur for themselves, and must rely instead on dialogue to report what so captivates the brothers. Ages 10-14.
