characters Woods Runner Gary Paulsen × 0 Free read Read & Download Û Woods Runner 100 Ut the war comes to them British soldiers and Irouois attack Samuel’s parents are taken away prisoners Samuel follows hiding moving silently determined to find a way to rescue them Each day he confronts the enemy and the tragedy a. 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

I loved Hatchet so when the chance came to read a similar looking book I took itThis book is not another Hatchet It doesn t try to be It s trying to teach kids about the atrocities that occurred during the American Revolution and that s why I don t like itI don t think it s just the horrific nature of some of the happenings that ruin this book for me He doesn t dwell on blood and gore much It s the lack of character in the name of drawing a picture to teach us and the little lessons between each chapter are the least annoying aspect of thisThis story concerns Samuel a 13 year old boy who somehow in just about a year has learned everything he needs to know on his own to be a fabulous outdoorsman He is mature thinks uickly makes no mistakes of action or judgment and is not much phased by anything He needs to know these things so that he can run through the woods the sole part of this book I enjoyed and rescue everyoneSamuel has no personality characteristics beyond perfection He is occasionally a bit scared but it doesn t daunt him He is also occasionally sad but that does not seem to affect him at all He is not funny or anxious petulant affected in any negative way by the anger he feels or ever in much doubt as to the proper course of action He is the most boring and unappealing character I ve met in a while Everyone good he meets is either in need of his help and meekly follows him because he saves them entirely and they can t help him in the slightest or a fellow perfect person They are also good and never do anything even slightly shady except try to steal a chicken when starvingThe bad people are very very bad We know that the Hessians are worse than the British and the Indians we are told Irouois though we hear nothing about them that would differentiate them from any other stereotypical Indian but everyone is blindly bloodthirsty They have no redeeming characteristics at all not even caring for their fellow soldiers They are almost as dull as characters as he is No moral ambiguity whatsoeverThe plot itself is fine It s exciting My fourth grader would struggle with the horrors told but many would not My problem is that I don t want to see an exciting story told about cardboard characters I can t care anything about In Hatchet the boy is terrified He struggles His loneliness is eating him up at times I cared about him This Samuel I felt nothing for except the odd eye roll as he did some heroics perfectlyI m just not about stories unless they re about believable people

characters Woods Runner Gary Paulsen × 0 Free read Read & Download Û Woods Runner 100 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. Thirteen year old Samuel lives at the edge of the forest on the Pennsylvania frontier on the eve of the American Revolution Somehow he s taught himself woodsman s skills and spends his time roving in the woods and hunting with his 40 caliber flintlock rifle to provide food for his family and neighbors His world is shattered when a war party of Irouois and British soldiers raid the area killing the inhabitants and burning the homes and outbuildings while Samuel is away in the woods To his surprise and relief Samuel discovers that his parents aren t among the dead but were taken prisoner He sets out to find then embarking on a journey that takes him all the way to British occupied New York Along the way Samuel is befriended by people who help him in his uest and he also finds himself a little sisterGary Paulsen s Woods Runner is aimed at young readers around Samuel s age and gives them a realistic taste of life on the Eastern frontier at the beginning of the Revolutionary War He doesn t sugar coat the horrors of frontier warfare but doesn t get overly graphic about them either One interesting point was how unlike Samuel who ranged deep into the woods Samuel s parents and neighbors were afraid of venturing too far into the forest and stuck close to its edge After each chapter Paulsen has a special page that talks about life in the 1750s as it ties in with the novel such as how people communicated with one another life on the frontier British and American armies and prisoners of war I think providing the information is a nice way to teach history The book does have some inaccuracies though For example Paulsen has Samuel wearing smoked buckskin clothing when by 1750 he would have been wearing clothing made of wool cotton or linen such as the Native Americans wore if he was woods runner And I doubt that he could down a bear with a lightweight40 caliber rifle which apparently he had done on many occasions Samuel s getting help along the way was fine but locating his parents when he reached New York was way too easyAll in all though I think Woods Runner is a good novel that introduces young readers to frontier life during the American Revolution
