Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Peter Berkrot

Young Adult Young Adult • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

A chilling adventure set in the Far North, this Printz Honor Book introduces listeners to Sig Anderson, a teenage boy alone in a tiny cabin above the Arctic Circle with the frozen body of his father. When Sig is menaced by an intruder, he remembers the Colt revolver in a box in the storage room, and his father's careful instructions on how the pistol works. The twisty action swings between 1910 and the period of the Gold Rush in 1899. Peter Berkrot’s excellent storytelling voice subtly reminds listeners that a narrator doesn't need to lard a piece with gimmicky accents to grip the mind's eye. He narrates with an immediacy and urgency that make this hard to stop listening to. M.M.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
