Winter Camp a five star book! 31 Jan. 2001
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Wintr Camp is an awesome ficton book by Kirkpatrick Hill. It is about a girl that they call Sister, and a boy named Toughboy.They live with a lady named Natasha. Natasha takes them to Winter Camp, they will stay there for a while. The log cabin is old, dusty, and the windows are cracked.So the cold air seeps through the walls.Toughboy and Sister have to do their chores everyday.One day a man named Nelson comes and gets kicked by a moose.Natasha checked to see if he was hurt, and they found out that he broke his arm. The rest of the story is about how Natasha goes to get help. I enjoyed this book because it was exciting, and it captured my attention. The theme or mesage in Winter Camp was that the old ways are good and the new ways are good too.

The Authentic Alaskan Adventure Continues 9 Jun. 2008
By Kyle Pratt - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have just finished my first year teaching 4th through 6th grade students in a remote Eskimo village. Earlier in the year we had read Toughboy and Sister and toward the end of the year we finished the sequel, Winter Camp. As we read both stories I asked the students if the descriptions or events about nearby Athabascan Native Americans sounded true to them. Invariably they said, "yes."

The two novels focus on a brother and sister, known in their village as Toughboy and sister. After their Father dies they live two come to live with their Aunt Natasha. Natasha longs for the old ways and is unwilling to change. She finds the children soft and suddenly takes them out of school and flies out to cabin in the bush. The children come to admire the survival knowledge and stamina of the Aunt, but question the value of many of the old beliefs. This book explores some basic conflicts; children set against nature, and tradition versus technology.

According to the publisher's website the author, Kirkpatrick Hill, still lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. She taught elementary school in "bush" Alaska for more than thirty years.

Both Toughboy and Sister and Winter Camp are written in a limited omnipresent point of view. We frequently jump from the mind of Toughboy to his sister and back. The story is often told in narrative format and while well written is at times uneven.

Recommendation: If you are a teenage reader and want a taste of what life is still like for many in the remote parts of Alaska, I recommend both Toughboy and Sister and Winter Camp.

winter camp by kirkpatrick hill is a thrilling book that has taught me a lot about indians. i give this a three star rating because it left me with a loy of knowlege and different emotions. the company that published this book was mcmillan. i learned a lot og indian words like "huntly". there were words in the book that i would of never even guessed were real. i learned about animals and traps and survival skills. the main point of the book is when natasha toughboy and sister went to a winter camp to learn living the "hard ways". when one of natasha's friends come trouble starts... her friend is confronted by a huge moose that rams him in the ground, her friend breaks his anke. natasha leaves to get help. so it's up to toughboy and sister to do the house, cooking, hunting, and cleaning. they have late nights and early mornings. will they make it home? at leats for christmas. this is a book for all ages. i encourege everyone to read it. it's a great book!
