Betsy Byars began her writing career rather late in life. In all of my school years,. not one single teacher ever said to me, 'Perhaps you should consider becoming a writer,'" Byars recalls. Anyway, I didn't want to be a writer. Writing seemed boring

Betsy Byars began her writing career rather late in life. Writing seemed boring. You sat in a room all day by yourself and typed. If I was going to be a writer at all, I was going to be a foreign correspondent like Claudette Colbert in Arise My Love. I would wear smashing hats, wisecrack with the guys, and have a byline known round the world. My father wanted me to be a mathematician.

    Book Review

    Trouble River is about a boy who makes a raft. Then one night an Indian comes and tries to kill him and his grandma. So then they have to float down trouble River (which is a shallow slow moving river) to get to hunter city so that they can be with the rest of the family and to keep safe from the Indians.

    I really like the book, but my favorite part is when him and his grandma is resting on the bank of the river. Then they hear wolves approaching their rest area. Then Dewey the boy grabs his gun and helps his grandmother onto the raft. A wolf tries to attack them so he shot the wolf in the chest with his gun. Then you can hear the wolf bleeding to death.

    I would very much recommend this book because it was a page turner. You never wanted to put the book down. You wanted to know what happened next. Also I would recommend this book because it shows how life was back then. It said that at any given moment an Indian could sneak up on you and kill you. It shows what a harsh life it was for the settlers. That is why I would recommend this book.

  • I read with my grandchildren. When they are old enough to read on their own, I buy two books, and have them read theirs, I read mine, and we talk about the book. I look for the "old-fashioned" book where there is character development and personal growth. The grandchild who is reading this book with me in going into 3rd grade. I am sticking with Byers books to teach the concept of "Do you like the author, let's find another book by that author."

    This grandchild lives in the town where a shooter killed an entire class of children. She does not want to talk about death, guns, or any violence.

    This book, in a totally unrelated timeline, addresses tragedy and "carrying on." Just what, in these demanding times, is needed and tells the story from a young boy's perspective.

  • Trouble River by Betsy Byars is a fantastic book! The characters in this book are Dewey and Grandma. Dewey is a hard worker and is sneaky. In the beginning Grandma is hard to work with. She is also stubborn, but at the end she is calm and easy going.

    The main part of Trouble River is about a boy and his grandma trying to get to Hunter City. Trouble River is so good that you will not want to put it down. It will also keep you guessing. Throughout the book, Dewey and Grandma run into a lot of problems getting to Hunter City. In the beginning, a twelve-year old boy named Dewey has to take Grandma down Trouble River because of an Indian. In the middle, Dewey and Grandma have left the Dargan's. They are on their way to Hunter City. They had stopped in the woods for the night. Dewey's dog Charlie started barking at something. Dewey woke up. He didn't see anything at first then he saw it. I'll let you read the book to find out what Dewey and Charlie saw. Will they make it to Hunter City alive?

    I hope you like this book as much as I do. The reason why I like Trouble River is because when I read this book I never wanted to put it down. It also kept me guessing.

  • Trouble River was about a young boy and his grandma. Dewey was building a raft, and he named it the Rosie B. The Indians suddenly came to their cabin, and hurt their dog, Charlie, with a tomahawk. Charlie survived, and Dewey, Grandma, and Charlie got on the raft to escape the Indians. Grandma stayed in the rocking chair on the raft during the trip. They were going to their neighbors' house, but that house was burned down too. That was not all their trouble. They were caught in dangerous rapids and chased by wolves. Finally they make it to Hunter City. Dewey's mom and dad were there because they had a brand new baby. Everyone was amazed that a 12 year old boy built such a good raft, and made it down the river.
    I am a 10 year old old that loves this book because it has action, is interesting, and you never know what will happen next. So read the book and see how you like it. This book is part action, part history, and part one whole book!
