John’s Grandfather has cancer so he has to hunt alone this year. He waits and waits, but cannot see a single deer. Finally he comes apon a doe in a clearing. He picks up his gun and tries to pull the trigger, but he can’t bring himself to do it. He stalks the deer through the forest for a while until he comes very close to the doe. He reaches out and touches the doe. Then he heads home. It had no story line what so ever.It lacked excitement. The character development was okay, but John didn’t really do anything besides walk in the woods. This book gets 2 out of 5 shields. Usually I love Gary Paulsen’s books, but this one didn’t live up to my expectations.
