Awasin, a Cree Indian boy, and Jamie, a Canadian orphan living with his uncle, the trapper Angus Macnair, are enchanted by the magic of the great Arctic wastes. They set out on an adventure that proves longer and more dangerous than they could have imagined. Drawing on his knowledge of the ways of the wilderness and the implacable northern elements, Farley Mowat has created a memorable tale of daring and adventure.

When first published in 1956, Lost in the Barrens won the Governor-General's Award for Juvenile Literature, the Book-of-the-Year Medal of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians and the Boys' Club of America Junior Book Award.

This book was amazing. My dad recommended it to my after I finished all the books in the house!! The mysterious parts were only mysterious for one day though. At 11 reading Books for high school kids this was a well written book. If you enjoy tons of mystery I would recommend "Conspiracy 365. "

We loved the wolverine. We really liked the Stone House and the artifacts Jamie found under it. As a mom I really liked that these teeage boys could admit their mistakes and learn from them.
