review Woods Runner ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Samuel 13 spends his days in the forest hunting for food for his family He has grown up on the frontier of a British colony America Far from any town or news of the war against the King that American patriots have begun near BostonB. In the beginning I was bored with Woods Runner I m not really a huge fan of survival fiction but I do like some historical fiction But I thought the historical notes were distracting because they occur after each chapter Then I noticed that they were pretty much geared towards what you just read so they could actually add to the reading But I didn t like that so I stopped reading themMy impression of Woods Runner changed drastically after Sam went out hunting the bear OhMyWord The description of the raids and Sam following the raiders was amazing I had to read with one eye closed and I had to keep some tissues nearby Gary Paulsen s details add an additional dimension to the book that never felt intrusive I could barely put the book down I actually closed my office door and turned off the overhead light I did not want to be disturbed Woods Runner gave me a different perspective on the Revolutionary War It s a fast read but it s not easy The trauma Sam his parents and then Annie experience is haunting By having us follow Sam as he tries to track down his parents Paulsen was able to insert the historical aspects without slowing down the story We learned about the redcoats their weaponry the Hessians war prisoners and normal people who helped the Americans It was a nice lesson and didn t feel like you were being schooledI think Woods Runner is better than last year s Notes From The Dog and in keeping with Hatchet I see it leaping off the shelves

review Woods Runner ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Nd horror of this war But he also discovers allies men and women working secretly for the patriot cause And he learns that he must go deep into enemy territory to find his parents all the way to the British headuarters New York City. Samuel the woodsy self reliant protagonist of Gary Paulsen s Woods Runner is not unlike Brian Robeson of the famed Hatchet and its seuels For one thing Samuel is the exact same age thirteen as Brian was when he began his own wilderness epic Samuel lives off of his wits and supremely fine tuned wilderness skills deep in the woods of colonial America away from his parents in much the same way as Brian does when he decides in the later Hatchet books that he would rather not live around people Samuel s instincts are honed to a razor s edge of awareness he can discern the type of animal he s listening to and the direction it s moving just from the tiny snap of a twig or the rustle of undergrowth that it disturbs on the forrest floor and he uses his wilderness expertise to keep himself and his family fed Little does he realize that the fledgling country he calls home is hovering on the brink of major nationwide disaster in the form of a bloody torturous war that will leave countless lives shredded in its wake before all is finished Samuel is lucky that he doesn t live at home any when the armed forces on the British side of the Revolution first strike They cruelly wring out the life of nearly everyone living in the town where Samuel s parents reside maiming flesh and bone in repulsive unspeakable ways When Samuel notices the think billowing smoke rising through the trees miles away in the direction of his parents town he recognizes by the type of smoke he sees that the fire is man made and must signal some kind of awful calamity He is sickened as he returns to where his parents live and sees the grossly degraded bodies of family friends strewn all over but at least his parents aren t among the dismembered dead The only hope Samuel has is to set off in pursuit of the band of soldiers whom he surmises have abducted his parents and try to steal them back Time and again as he stalks the kidnappers Samuel s life is saved by little surprise twists of happenstance accidents of pure chance that end up meaning the difference between a grizzly death and an opportunity to continue the chase to locate his parents This is war and nothing about Samuel s destiny is set in stone ahead of time He is as vulnerable to the effects of sudden death wrought by wayward or intentioned musket balls as any other kid caught in the middle of this savage conflict and he will by necessity have to cheat certain death a dozen times or just to have a chance of reaching his parents in one piece Samuel s travels have him tiptoeing a fine razor s edge almost nonstop throughout Woods Runner teetering constantly on the verge of doom and this creates an atmosphere of ever encroaching suspense On the road to overtake the marauders who swiped his family Samuel observes further examples of the waves of death brought about by the war He sees even the mangled corpses of young children by the way and personally witnesses the carrying out of atrocities of an eually heartless nature by Hessian mercenaries against innocent American citizens Samuel doesn t have much personal stake in the outcome of the war but he can recognize cruelty and horror when he sees it and instinctively allies himself with the rebels to King George s crown As he tries to keep pace with the movements of the soldiers who kidnapped his own parents Samuel meets with other Americans whose tragic stories of grief and family loss at the hands of the British and the Hessians give him even of a cause for which to fight and a definite interest in helping to determine who will win out when the sanguine struggle between the most powerful army on earth and the stout American colonists is complete Gary Paulsen does a fantastic job of bringing an unconsidered corner of the American Revolution alive in this book Interspersed with the heartrending action of the story are short segments explaining various technical aspects of the war and I learned from these informational historical pieces than I have in all but two or three other books that I have ever read about the Revolution Story aside Woods Runner is worth a great deal just for these bits of fascinating nonfiction which detail parts of the Revolution that I never knew about There s the introduction of grapeshot ammunition and how it had the most extreme impact of any new weaponry advancement on suddenly increasing death tolls in battle up until the advent of rapid fire machine gun artillery in the Great War There s the treatment of war orphans which had to be a major issue in this country considering how many American soldiers were killed but which rarely is talked about in books Then there s the significant effect that civilian spying had on the entire conflict including the use of carrier pigeons to relay messages on behalf of the resistance How important may it have been in any particular battle for the rebels to have even just a vague idea of what was coming beforehand When an army is made up of farmers and blacksmiths inexperienced in the art of war I d have to think that such an advantage could mean nearly everything All throughout Woods Runner we come across nuggets of information like this and many of them were completely new to me Woods Runner is a sobering book doing nothing to glamorize the tribulations of war or make heroes out of its participants It is a moving exploration of one part of the Revolution though and a story told with masterful simplicity that will bring the experience of the war crashing home hard for readers In my opinion this is Gary Paulsen near his very best though I actually would have liked the book to be expanded to maybe three hundred or four hundred pages to be able to deliver the story in detailed depth Nonetheless Woods Runner is a fine novel that I highly recommend and I would probably give it three and a half stars

The book Woods Runner is one of the best books I have ever read The intense parts involving combat kept me interested in the book Reading is one of my least favorite things to do but this book was hard to put down I like the book because there was always something happening Most books will have dull or boring parts but Gary Paulsen never let that happen Another part that I liked was how it was fairly short Don t let this fool you though because this book is awesome My favorite part in this novel was when Samuel finally saves his parents The main objective throughout the book is for him to track them down and get them back Without the help of two people Abner and Matthew the job would not have been completed My least favorite part of the book is the death of Annie s parents As Samuel is moving towards New York he comes upon a farmhouse He becomes friends with them and they provide him with exceptional hospitality When he leaves he passes a group of Hessians who end up killing Anne s parents and destroying their home This tragedy leads to Annie becoming apart of Samuel s family My favorite character in this book is Samuel He spends a majority of his time in the woods as has a very good understanding of nature I love being in the woods and living off of the land just like Samuel Samuel is also a very caring person He showed a lot of respect towards all people and put his life on the line for his family This in my opinion is a hidden message that the author includes He wants all of the readers to realize that things can be gone in the blink of an eye and you need to be appreciative of everything in your life
