    Wild Trekis the sequel toSnow Dog.I liked the story of both, but Jim Kjelgaard's world view is depressing, to say the least. All of his books are like Jack London's- very interesting and enjoyable, but ultimately depressing. The only point in life is to survive. I liked the dog, because that's basically what a dog's point of view should be. I didn't like Link Steven's view, because that's not what a human should think. His partner contemplated the meaning of life, but I feel the author was somehow mocking that kind of inquisitiveness. Since the world view was the only think I disliked about this book,I would have only knocked off one star. However, since the world view of evolution was more or less shoved down the reader's throat, I knocked off two. Chiri is very lovable, so as long as he was around, the book was enjoyable.

    This book is for boys or for any gender that has an interest in Survival Adventure. For it being about surviving in the Caribous and there is hunting, the book isnt gory leaving it for any age level.I would rate this book five of five stars because the book is interesting and keeps you going. There wasnt anything that i disliked about the book. I absolutely love this plot and setting.The book was amazing and connected with what i had learned in school with being a cave man. I learned new words about nature and surviving. THe only part of the book I did not like was sentences containing "had had", i felt that either there was manmy typos or I am not aware of that correct grammer. I feel the theme was something along the lines of "Survival hs you learn things " or something serious with survival.

    Wild Trek is a survival/ adventure book where a dog and his owner venture out into the wilderness looking for a group of lost travelers. It is an action packed page turner full of descriptive writing that makes you feel like you're actually there. I really liked this book because it's super exciting to read and contains a thrilling adventure into the wilderness where you have to work hard to survive. I think that many people would enjoy this book, but especially those who like a medium length book with aspects of action, adventure, survival and nature.

    Link goes on a journey with Chiri to find 2 lost people whose plane crashed. Their names were Antray and Garridge. Will they find them? What will happen if they do? You will have to read this book to find out!I really like this book because it is an adventurous book, and I love adventures! You have got to read this book!

    The followup to Snow Dog. Link and Chiri must go into untamed mountains to rescue two men who crashed there. Like all Jim Kjelgaard books very entertaining beginning to end.

    This book has been on my shelf for longer than I care to remember. It was seminal in my developmental years. I always wanted to live in a cabin in the far North, but the nearest I came is a cabin in Indiana.This is the story of a trapper named Link and his half-wild dog Chiri, volunteering to help an injured Police Officer, who go into a formidable and nearly impenetrable wild country in search of a scientist and his pilot who have gone missing. This is a part of the world where no one has ventured before home only to the denizens of the deep forest. The scientist was in search of an Albino Moose to study. Weather, the forest and man conspire to rob them of their lives but they endure and manage to return home to the Gander.Definitely one of my favorite books that I read over and over again.

    Wild Trek, the sequel to Snow Dog, is an intriguing and exciting story. A trapper must venture into a virtually untouched wilderness, facing animals that will attack without hesitation if provoked, in order to rescue two plane crash survivors.If you read and liked Snow Dog, I think you'll love this story (I recommend reading Snow Dog first if you haven't yet, though). Kjelgaard portrays interesting survival scenarios that require ingenuity and endurance in this story, with poetic thoughts interlaced appropriately (though I personally don't agree with some of the ideas that seem to be suggested).

    I enjoyed the adventure through the Caribou Mountains, but this sequel to Snow Dog is just not as good. For one, the story only focused on Link Stevens and lost photographer Trigg Antray. What made Snow Dog unique is that we saw how the events unfolding in the story affected both man and animal. In Wild Trek, it seemed like Chiri the dog was just a prop in this tale, as we don't see how the events are affecting him. Often, Chiri runs off for a chapter, but the story doesn't run off with him to see what he is up to. I wish I could have explored the Caribous through Chiri as well.

    This was the one that had The Scene I was trying to find. I had to rate at least one of his books 5 stars; any author worth reading multiple times has to be worth 5 stars. Since part of this story has stayed with me for years it seems it has earned the rating (although that may not always hold true since some of the books I go back and re-read are not at all what I remember!) Good adventure, good writing, good life lesson.

    The sequel of Snow Dog, this book was disappointing in that it seemed to focus much more on Link than on Chiri. Chiri, of course, made the first book phenomenal, so I was hoping to have more of the same excitement, rather than a simple rescue journey. Still, it is a worthwhile read, even if it is little like the captivating, harsh world found Snow Dog.

    It took a couple of chapters before the story got started, but overall it was a good read. There was intelligent dialog and clear narration. Jim Kjelgaard's style reminds me of Louis L'amour, and that's not a bad thing.

    Great book. Not so sure about the references to ancient man though.

    I found this book to be interesting and had a unique story of survival in the place where antray and link survived.

    I have the hardback version of this. It's a sequel to Snow Dog and not quite as good but still fun reading.

    This was a great book by a really good wildlife author. Grew up with Kjelgaard and have always liked his stuff. There are some dated passages, but overall, timeless.

    The very first book I read as a child. I don't think I actually made it all of the way through though.
