I first read this book many years ago, as an assignment for English class in middle school. I remember at the time being shocked by the content of the book, and surprised that I was being assigned to read a book that was somewhat modern, startlingly graphic, and engrossing at the same time. It fascinated me and opened my eyes to a style of writing of which at that point I had not yet been exposed. Graphic subject matter aside, it remained one of my favorite reading assignments of the time.

I bought this book last year after 20 years have gone by, and was just as interested when reading it today as I was back then. While the subject matter is mature, it is not over the top. Unlike what some reviewers here have said, there certainly are people in this world who are as cruel as Madec; just read the news headlines. The overriding theme of justice prevailing, and moral decisions triumphing over lies and deceipt, makes it an enjoyable weekend read that leaves you satisfied with the conclusion. The fact that this book does not sugar-coat the harsh realities of life makes it that much more of a believable story.

My vote -- worth reading.

From the first chapter you are aware of the good vs evil in the story. Hard to believe one man could be so coldly cruel to another man. Ben's ability to survive demonstrates his knowledge of the desert and his own determination.

I read this book on recommendation of an acquaintance. Writing kept my interest even through portions of the book where the character Ben accomplished feats that I personally don't believe are physically possible for an ordinary human. Kept reading mainly to seeh what he would do next. The plot was believable as I believe there are people who have the mindset of the character Madec. I was able to suspend my disbelief for a time & enjoy the tale but not as much as if it was an advertised fantasy. I also enjoy sci fi and fantasy but with them I expect such passages...

I taught this novel for many years to high school students, and they always loved it. So of course I had to buy a copy for my grandson.

What a great little adventure book! I wasn't in the junior high class that read it in my school. Living in AZ, I decided to give it a try. My teen son and I both loved it. The desert survival aspects are cool, and the tension never lets up the whole time. Really, I'm surprised it's not on Audible, and hard to find at all in audiobook format.

A simple read, but enthralling and engaging. Definitely too short :-) I'd recommend this book to young people for a fun, quick read.

I was the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Wildlife Manager in Lake Havasu City when Robb White wrote this excellent book about the struggle between a young man and a rich businessman over a desert bighorn sheep. These sheep have always been a trophy and open to poachers because of the rugged terrain they live in -- miles from people and roads.

While this story is not true, it could be. Robb did a great job in telling a tale about what might have happened. It is a tale about ethics, honor and desert survival againt greed, poaching and death.

While the location is fiction it is based on Lake Havasu City, Arizona where Robb lived in the late 1960's but, the tale could be just as true today.

I read this years ago in middle school and found it on Amazon for my 12 year old son. He could not put it down! He says "AMAZING...I WOULD READ IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN...WORDS CAN NOT DESCRIBE". It was a hit! This is coming from a child who has read all the Harry Potter books, the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympusseries, Hunger Games, Maximum Ride etc. Will be looking to see what other Robb White masterpieces are is still in print and available from Amazon. I think I just might have to read it again myself.
