I thought the book Canyons, by Gary Paulsen was a very good book. Canyons, by Gary Paulsen follows the story of 15 year-old Brennan who finds a skull that belonged to someone else but from a different time period. In the beginning of the book it tells about a young indian boy named Coyote Runs. He goes on a raid with other members of his tribe and they get attacked by soldiers. The book starts off switching between two characters from chapter to chapter. This may seem a bit confusing at first, but because Gary Paulsen does such a good job on switching between character to character, the story flows very smoothly.

I hear The Boy who owned the college via gary paulsen became a good e book.

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.
I got this for my little brother because I remembered reading and enjoying it in 7th grade. Fantastic story!
My son loved this story!
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
