This is a nonfiction novel which shows how the ties of kinship is broken and reunited, as well as elements of child abuse.This is a story of how a girl got reunited with her grandfather and his collegues.This union blossomed into a fruitful understanding of their different behaviours and mannerisms.if you are the type that loves hiking and camping, then this book is definitely for you. It has a good navigational guide that indicates to the reader the direction where the characters in the book are heading.

The novel has a very good description of the environments.The environs have a lot of camping sites, trailheads, voids, cliffs and a lot of trips.Infact this novel gives the reader a firsthand experience of the great outdoors.And also the equipments required for such endeavours.For instance, where the author said William pulled out his whistle and blew SOS four to five times, as loud as he could.Then he waited.After 10 minutes, he blew again.He did this for half an hour, then gave up.He made a large arrow in the sand, pointing to their camp site up on Bear Creek.He wrote SOS in the gravel and started back to the cliff.

These are very instructive and enlightening to the reader on how to manage and control an outing expedition in the woods, Islands or valleys.These also give a positive indication on the mannerisms of people having great fun outdoors.There are also action involved in these trips by Sara, her grandfather - Tom, William and the rest of the crew, including Roger and Raymond.The story highlights the strong connection between man and beast or more appropriately, between Sara and the bear.

And how it led her to safety by navigating the way for her in the dark.I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because to me it has achieved it's aim in all due respects of enlightening as well as getting the reader acquainted with the experiences of embarking on trips to the great outdoors.For instance, where the author said in the book.

As soon as they left the parking lot, they were in the forest.The trail was covered with needles and leaves.The trees here grew close and despite the sun overhead, they walked in shadows.The trail, along a side hill, twisted and curved, passing tumbling freshets.The forest was quite but for the sound of their thudding feet and the cry of an occasional bird.These descriptions are amazing, they can take the reader into the forest from his or her bedroom.

Thank you for your review. The book, indeed, aimed to be well-researched and very descriptive enough to allow the reader to easily visualise the idyllic landscapes and support the characters' discussions especially on human migration.
