There is always a solution. For everything. Always. Sometimes it isn't pretty and takes a little longer, but there is still a solution.

To know things, for us to know things, is bad for them. We get to wanting and when we get to wanting it's bad for them. They thinks we want what they got . . . . That's why they don't want us reading.

Then we knew he was lying.

The answer to his problem had come to.

He could see it now. Oh, yes, all as he ran in the sun, his legs liquid springs.

Read like a wolf eats.

He had to keep thinking of them because if he forgot them and did not think of them they might forget about him. And he had to keep hoping. He had to keep hoping.

Maybe it was always that way, discoveries happened because they needed to happen.

The person who reads can bail, but the person who doesn't fails.

Not hope that he would be rescued--that was gone. But hope in his knowledge. Hope in the fact that he could learn and survive and take care of himself. Tough hope, he thought that night. I am full of though hope.

A border collie saved me once when I was pinned under a horse in Colorado. And once when I went through the ice, one of my sled dogs saw me go under, and she got the rest of the team, and they pulled me out of 12 feet of water. I think that dogs offer the only form of unconditional love that's available to humans.

The book is that is the good one is Woodsong and we are trying to finish it.

Sometimes it would be nice if life just kept happening the way it's happening, if things got to a good place and just stayed there, didn't change.

It's just that those things don't seem to have the weight, the measureless beauty of countless sunsets and dawns, the simple grace and clear glory of nature.

He was out of food, but he could look tomorrow and he could build a signal fire tomorrow and get more wood tomorrow . . . The.

The mosquitoes. Tearing at him, clouds of them, the awful, ripping, thick masses of the small monsters trying to bleed him dry.

If you keep walking back from good luck, he thought, you'll come to bad luck.

A person can do practically anything for a short time if he doesn't think he has to do it for life.

But the beauty of the woods, the incredible joy of it is too alluring to be ignored, and I could not stand to be away from it--indeed, still can't--and so I ran dogs simply to run dogs; to be in and part of the forest, the woods.

None of that used to be in Brian and now it was a part of him, a changed part of him, a grown part of him, and the two things, his mind and his body, had come together as well, had made a connection with each other that he didn't quite understand.

The maximum expression of running dogs is the Iditarod. You enter a state of primitive exaltation, and you never return. You're never normal again.

You didn't want somebody running around smiling and saying, 'We'll get by,' when the house was on fire; you wanted somebody to yell 'fire!

Stories are like a river that flows - you dip a bucket in it.

Brian looked back and for a moment felt afraid because the wolf was so... so right. He knew Brian, knew him and owned him and chose not to do anything to him. But the fear moved then, moved away,and Brian knew the wolf for what it was - another part of the woods, another part of all of it.

The hatchet. The key to it all. Nothing without the hatchet. Just that would take all his thanks. And.

He had read somewhere that wolves could eat up to twenty pounds of meat in a single meal and he thought the dog was coming close. She . . . just . . . kept . . . eating.

I am full of tough hope.

It was, all in all, a grand example of interspecies lack of cooperation and the further illustration that might makes right. I stayed in the rest area, in my car, for another half an hour, until everything had settled down, and saw who emerged as the victor. The bees kept the water fountain.

How could he? The.

Listen to me, he thought. If I were talking out loud, I'd be whining. Derek gets hit and I act like I'm the one getting messed up.

Do what you can as you can. Trouble, problems, will come no matter what you do , and you must respond as they come.

Reading is not daily its a life style for all readers.

My name is Brian Robeson and I am thirteen years old and I am alone in the north woods of Canada. All.

I know that my life on boats has been about this: not the sailing or the sea so much as learning about self. And almost every boat I have had has taught me something.

Humans are the big thing that cause damage in life - in war or whatever - and if I can get away from that and into a wilderness situation, I'm OK. You can more or less live on your own merit.

Adults are locked into car payments and divorces and work. They haven't got time to think fresh.

I have seen their humor and anger expressed in natural terms and learned more about them as dogs and not just extensions of human training.

The memory was like a knife cutting into him. Slicing deep into him with hate. The.

Change is good, but sometimes leaving things the way they've always been is better.

The burning eyes did not come back, but memories did, came flooding in. The words. Always the words. Divorce.

But I'm your brother. Daniel sounded genuinely wounded. You, she announced, are a turd in the punch bowl of life.

Misery is optional.

My parents were brutal to each other, so I slept in the basement by an old coal-fired furnace. I became a street kid. Occasionally, I'd live with aunts or uncles, then I'd run away to live in the woods, trapping and hunting game to survive. The wilderness pulled at me; still does.

He widened the hole with his finger and looked inside.

There were these things to do.

Look at Inuit clothing. Their stuff still works better than Cabela's. I've made my own parkas, mukluks, footgear, and it is good to 60 degrees below zero. All I did was copy the patterns that came down from the Inuits.

If you look at it from the right point of view, lying is just good manners.

Simple. Keep it simple. I am Brian Robeson. I have been in a plane crash. I am going to find some food. I am going to find some berries.

I was raised on farms by people who didn't have Wal-Mart. They had to make their own sleds, harnesses, clothing, etc.
