This story of two Norwegian-American farm boys who discover the remarkable magic of storytelling is vintage Gary Paulsen-earthy, gritty, and ultimately poignant. Following the turn of the seasons, eleven year old Eldon traces the daily routines of his life on a farm and his relationship with his older brother Wayne. During the winter, with little work to be done on the farm, Eldon and Wayne spend the quiet hours with their family, listening to their Uncle David's stories. But Eldon soon learns that, although he has lived on the same farm, in the same house with his uncle for eleven springs, summers, and winters, he hardly knows him.

Professional reviews

"For two brothers, Eldon and Wayne, winter is the best time of year. Every night their great uncle tells the family stories in "the winter room," the warmest room in their home near Hudson Bay. One night Uncle David tells a true story, which changes everything. Woodman enlivens the story with the emotions and enthusiasm of the two brothers. Along with these enthusiastic portrayals, he manipulates pauses and word emphasis to greatly enhance the feeling of reality. Woodman has a harder time with the adult male voices, but this doesn't disrupt the effective reading. Young adult through high school audiences will find this entertaining. P.A.J.
