From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up After his small boat is overturned, Ansell is "not lost, but stuck" in the remote Australian bush for seven weeks. In this first-hand account, Rod recalls the loss of his supplies and equipment, the three-day search for fresh water, finding food, and setting up a camp. With only two puppies for companions, he depends on resourcefulness and inner strength until he is rescued by a group of traveling bushmen. Interspersed with the account of the ordeal are Ansell's descriptions of the life of an Australian bushman and some information about the geography and wildlife of Australia. The terse style of writing reflects the matter-of-fact acceptance of the situation. Many Australian colloquialisms and expressions enrich the narrative. Geographical points are easily located on the map at the front of the book. This book compares to other first-hand survival accounts, such as Lauren Elder and Shirley Streshinsky's And I Alone Survived (Dutton, 1978; o.p.) and Dougal Robertson's Survive the Savage Sea (Sheridan, 1984). A good addition to survival collections in school and public libraries. Ruth Fitzgerald, Central Michigan University, Mount Pleasant
