Description

A high-stakes middle grade from the survival story master Gary Paulsen, about a young boy on the razor's edge between life and death where the high seas meet a coastal wilderness.

This stunning historical adventure, set along a rugged coastline centuries ago, does for the sea what Hatchet did for the woods, as it relates the story of a young person’s battle to stay alive against the odds.

When a deadly plague decimates his fishing village, an orphan named Leif is forced to take to the water in a cedar canoe. He flees northward, following a wild, fjord-riven shore, navigating from one danger to the next. The deeper into his journey he paddles, the closer he comes to his truest self as he connects to the heartbeat of the ocean, the pulse of the landscape.

With hints of Nordic mythology and an irresistible narrative pull, Northwind is Gary Paulsen at his captivating, adventuresome best.

A high-stakes middle grade from the survival story master Gary Paulsen, about a young boy on the razor's edge between life and death where the high seas meet a coastal wilderness.
