The year is 1844, two years before The Donner Party the Stevens-Murphy company left Missouri to become the first wagons to come into California through the Sierra Nevada Mountains, they were mostly Irish Catholics and were going to California in search of religious freedom and educated. They had a safe journey until October when they faced a heavy snowstorm and had to face difficult decisions.

Station Eleven | Emily St John Mandel

For a #postapocalyptic novel, the plot of #StationEleven felt fresh. It focused less on the horrors of the new world and more on the beauty, tenderness, and interconnectedness of #humanity. I often considered how I'd feel in similar circumstances (both before and after the Flu). I loved that it was largely set along #LakeMichigan and in an #airport! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys this genre. #airplanes #pandemic #fiction #fame #survival

Hatchet | Gary Paulsen

This is an incredibly good middle grade book, but still reads pretty solidly for adults. The writing is age appropriate with good foreshadowing (without being blatantly obvious). Great information with regard to wilderness survival. I appreciate that Paulsen doesn't let things be easy for Brian. It takes practice, trial and error. The intended age group does have to be kept in mind, but overall the writing is really good for nearly every age.

Bound by Ice: A True North Pole Survival Story | Rich Wallace, Sandra Neil Wallace

Pickpick

I just recently ordered this nonfiction book for my class library. It is a fairly quick read that details an attempt to reach the North Pole by George De Long, captain of the Jeannette. After leaving Alaska and a year spent trapped in the ice, the ship sinks, and it becomes a survival story as the crew heads to Siberia over ice and by boat. It includes excerpts from journals, illustrations, and photos of artifacts.

I‘d be lying if I said this book didn‘t keep me up last night. I had a hard time sleeping after finishing just the first 3 chapters. I knew it would be a hard one for me, but I‘ve wanted to read it for a while now.

Some of you may know that my husband is an underground miner. I often mention that he‘s gone for 2 weeks at a time. He was recently promoted to blaster, and I feel better knowing that such an important and dangerous position ⬇️

Clwojick ... is being filled by such a smart, level headed person. I know that the mine is in good hands with him being trained in one of the more serious positions. While I‘ve always known that his mine is always SAFTEY FIRST #TIL that some mines could care less about the safety of their miners. I want to continue with the book, my my heart is hurting. 😞 (edited) 5d

4thhouseontheleft I knew your spouse worked away from home for weeks at a time, but didn‘t know it was in a mine. Congrats on the promotion for him! I‘m sure you are a source of strength for him too. 💜 5d
Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft I certainly try to be! I‘m grateful that his mine is only 2 hours from home, and that his mine takes all levels of safety procedures seriously. ♥️ 5d
Clwojick @Bookwormjillk always! ♥️thank you 5d

I always thought I had read this as a kid, but it was all new.

A girl is stranded on her home island off the CA coast when her tribe evacuates. She spends years fending for herself. Themes of isolation and survival, as well as hints of colonialism and environmental responsibility.

wanderinglynn That was one of my favorite books as a child. ❤️ 7d
FantasyChick I loved this book in school!! 7d

The Compound | S. A. Bodeen

#2”The compound” is a book about Eli Yanakakis, he has been living in an underground compound for 6 years, built by is father, who thinks there will be a nuclear attack. But unfortunately his Eli‘s twin brother and grandma didn‘t make it in. I think that this book is ok, hard to get in to for me. If you like books that are suspenseful you might like it.

Cfischbuch Thanks for your honest review. 2w
MissYaremcio Good work Kian! I am curious as to why Eli's twin brother and grandma didn't make it in! 2w
