Braving It: James Campbell

PicsArt_05-07-01.55.13Being that I am a fan of Into the Wild, I am always looking out for stories similar to Krakauer’s work. When this was available, I got it with great interest.

James and his daughter Aidan, go to Alaska’s Artic National Wildlife Refuge to help a long time friend build a new cabin before the harsh winter season sets in. After much persistence, Aidan talks her parents into letting her go along with this adventure. The story takes you through their struggles and triumphs in The Final Frontier, giving light to the fact that no matter your age, size, or gender, a strong will and courageous spirit can achieve almost anything.

While the story was interesting I had a hard time with the writing. Within the first two chapters I found multiple grammatical mistakes. Some being quite obvious. This book seemed as though it was still a work in progress. it needed a good edit and proof read. Also, I felt that the narrative was a bit gloating. There was a few times I had to roll my eyes.

Overall, the story was a nice read and I feel both teenagers and adventurers alike would enjoy this book.
