Product Description

Erik is preparing for his first-ever hunting trip when he learns that his parents are being deployed to Iraq.  A few days later, Erik is shipped off to North Dakota to live with Big Darrell and Oma, grandparents he barely knows. When Erik rescues a dog that’s been stuck by a porcupine, Big Darrell says Erik can’t keep him. But Erik has already named her Quill and can’t bear to give her up.  He decides to run away, taking the dog and a shotgun, certain that they can make it on their own out on the prairie.

In this story of adventure and survival, Erik learns about the challenges and satisfactions of living off the land, the power of family secrets, and the pain of losing what you love.

My kid loved it!

I recently bought this book for my nephew. He had to choose a book from a list his teacher gave him and this was one that he thought looked interesting. He's not a very enthusiastic reader, but this book really caught his imagination and he read it quickly. His favorite part was telling everyone about the chapter he had just read. I recommend this for any boy who doesn't care for reading. It could change his mind. :)

Erick life is on a down hill slide. His parents have just been deployed to Iraq. This means that he must move across the country to stay with his grandparents that he barely knows. When he gets there learns that his grandfather is an angry man. He is still dealing with the grief of losing his son in Iraq. Erik has had enough and decides to run away with a hunting dog that he has found. When the grandfather finds out that his grandson has run away it causes him to reevaluate his own life. He starts to make a change for the better. The novel moves at a fast pace. This book would be great for boys that are interested in wild life and survival stories.

This is the best book of all times and it almost brought me to tears. I have always longed for a dog as quill and now know to cherish what you have because it does not always last forever
