The book Canyons by Gary Paulsen has yet to be another decently written book by Paulsen. The book is slightly confusing as it goes, which I had to power read through, as it switches perspectives from two boys from two different cultures and time periods. Brennan Cole finds a skull that was pierced by a bullet. Which becomes one of his biggest obsessions along with trying to find out more information about the skull.

Two boys, separated by the canyons of time and two vastly different cultures, face the challenges by which they will become men. It was very easy for me to get drawn into this book. The story was not spectacular or mind blowing but the author did a great job in the beginning by alternating between chapters and telling the story. Пользовательский отзыв - Kirkus.

I really enjoyed reading Canyons but I also live in the Tularosa Valley where this book was supposed to take place. It made me want to delve into research of the Mescalero Apache culture and traditions. I also marveled at how it was not so long ago in history that the Apache roamed this valley freely without the reservation. I have purchased other books now on learning about the Apache and plan on attending some of their festivities in the future.

This is a story of a bond that forms between Brennan and Coyote Runs. The only problem they are separated by a two hundred year span of time. The alternating chapters made me feel like I was reading two books which was great. This is another great adventure story by Paulsen. I love his writing style, and I love Brennan's journey to put Coyote Runs to rest.

one of my favorite Paulsen books.
simple story of two young men trying to reach manhood in a parallel story with a twist. i enjoy Paulsens' clear and straightforward presentation of each young man and the trails he faces in his growth to manhood

Canyons was a good book, but I wouldn't say it was fantastic. The narration on the tape was very nice - not dull like many I've heard before. However, although the one I ordered was "unabridged," it did skip whole paragraphs in the book (my students followed along with the tape). This was confusing at times.

I suggest that any TEACHER using the tape to supplement their own classroom reading look for a CD version!!!!

I'm teaching this novel within a unit on Native American folklore/literature to middle school students. Paulsen relates to the struggles of adolescents today in a compare/contrast of a past culture.
Good story for adults and kids. Helped my son get interested in reading . Great audio book for in the car
