Sobre el autor

Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR. His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best. Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read." Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.

    Erik has just received his New York hunting license and is eager to spend the weekend hunting with his best friend when his mom and dad deliver some unexpected news: Erik has to leave in four days to spend the next six months with his grandparents in North Dakota. His parents, Army reservists, are being shipped overseas for a tour of duty. At first, Erik can’t wait for the six months to go by so he can return home to New York. Soon, though, Erik befriends a dog named Quill and things in North Dakota start to turn around. Some of the novel’s plot devices seem more convenient than realistic, which makes the story feel forced. The plot moves quickly, though, and young readers who enjoy hunting and outdoor adventures would enjoy this selection. Additional purchase. For ages 9-12.

    Loved it! Great juvenile read.
  • (4/5)
    Fast-paced, moving story about the bond between a young boy and a rescued dog.
  • (3/5)
     wild life was an okay book. The theme was wonderful as well as the characters. In the book, Erik's parents are both being deployed in Iraq. They will be there for 6 months, and in that time, Erik will be spending his 6 months with his boring grandparents in North Dakota. Erik hasn't always loved his old folks, but all of that will about to change.

    Twelve-year-old Erik Carlson has plans, big plans, He is finally old enough to get his New York State hunting license. He's passed the hunter safety course, and is actually going to go hunting with his friend Patrick, Patrick's dad, and their bird dog Hot Spots. But what good does it do for a kid to make plans? Suddenly, Erik's parent are deployed overseas as Army Reservists and he is sent to the Middle of Nowhere, North Dakota, to live with grandparents he barely knows. Oma, his meek and mild grandmother, is okay. But why is his grandfather Big Darrell so mean? And what's the big deal about the closed room at the top of the stairs? When Erik finds and rescues a dog that's been stuck by a porcupine, Big Darrell says the dog can stay one night and no longer. But Erik has already named her Quill and can't bear to give her up. He sets off, taking the dog and a gun, determined that they can make it on their own out on the prairie.

    Erik's parents deploy to Iraq, leaving him to go live with his Oma and Big Darrell on the prairies of North Dakota. Angry, lonely and feeling unwanted, Erik rescues a dog, names him Quill and claims the dog as his own. When the dog's owner turns up, Erik takes to the prairie, confident that he and Quill together can make a life for themselves on the prairie.Middle grade readers, both boys and girls, will love this book. Erik's independence, his love for Quill and his journey on the prairie will fuel the imaginations of young readers. What I liked about the book is that in the end, Erik discovers that there is more to the adults in his life than he first realized. His parents and grandparents aren't just labelled as "the bad guys" and kept that way. Erik is allowed to get to know them and appreciate them for who they are. This is a similar, but easier to read, tale to My Side of the Mountain, by Jean Craighead George, one of my personal classics.
