I personally think this book was quite cool and or good. Gary paulsen is a great special adventure fantasy book author. I like how he describes the characters, how he built up those characters. The story is basically about, this kid, named Russell Susskit. His dog and him, trying to find answers about something of his life that he couldn't find. His dad could not tell him the answer but this blind old man, Oogruk, helped him to set his way in the right direction.
