I liked the ending of how David willingly sacrifices his solitude to help Andy back to civilization and acquires a new role as caretaker of the archaeological site.
This helps him return to the island without losing his touch to the outside world. This is definitely a satisfying but rugged ending to this survival tale.
Jan 03, Rayda rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a great read by Will Hobbs. Set in southeast Alaska at the ABC islands Admiralty, Baranof, and Chichagof, due south of Juneau , 14 year old Andy is off on a sea-kayaking trip when he gets caught in a storm and marooned on Baranof.
The pacing of the story was terrific and it kept my interest, to see how he fared in this strange, cold wilderness. The author's piece at the end explains what is fact and what is fiction, and is a welcome addition to the story.
I highly recommend it for all This was a great read by Will Hobbs. I highly recommend it for all young boy readers, and many girls will enjoy the adventure as well.

It was much more than I expected, which was good and bad. The survival aspect failed entirely which bummed me out because that was why I was reading the book but that was by design as Hobbs morphed the story into one of hope and discovery.
I'd say this was your standard middle grades book that most any kid would enjoy. It doesn't translate over to adults as well but I enjoye My son was reading this for school and I've always been a sucker for survival stories so I grabbed this after he was done.
It doesn't translate over to adults as well but I enjoyed it enough although I did find myself skimming a page here and there.

It's a young adult book focusing on a Andy who is on a sea kayaking trip in southeast Alaska when he paddles away to go to a site where his archaeologist father had died when a violent storm blows in knocking him miles off course and leaving him stranded n a island with a mysterious wild man.
I liked the main character Andy Galloway because he was motivated through Wild Man Island Review I liked wild Man island because it kept me interested in the plot and the characters through the whole book.
I liked the main character Andy Galloway because he was motivated through the whole story for example he was motivated to go see where his father had slipped and fell to his death he wanted to see this spot because he wanted to know where, and what it looked like.
And after the storm hit and he got stranded on the island with the wild man he was motivated to find out who he was and why he was their.
He also was motivated to get off the island and back to his mom and grandparents because he couldn't imagine his mom losing him in the same area that they lost his dad.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes survival stories or even just the outdoors. Mar 08, Tom rated it it was amazing. Great adventure story; one of my favorites by Will Hobbs.
There is tension, adventure, drama. A great read for preteens, teens and adult who want a well-written thriller that is G-rated.
Feb 05, Walter N rated it really liked it. The theme of Wild Man Island is that if you want the respect of others, show why you should have it.
This book takes place in southwestern Alaska on an island called admiralty. Despite it being 40 miles wide and miles long, there is only one village, a small indian village named Angoon.
It is mostly a dense forest with a few meadows and beeches. There are many ravens and wolves on the island. There are also many bears which is why the people of Angoon call the island"The fortress of bears".
But most interestingly there in one Newfenland dog. This dog is not native to Alaska or Canada. The story is told by Andy, a fourteen year old that is in Alaska because of a canoe trip.
There is also a mysterious wild woodsman who lives on the island. He has long hair and a long scraggly beard. Andy, while on a canoe trip with a group, leaves the group who are staying on Baronof Island to go put a small stone carved boat at his fathers death place.
His father died on a nearby island while doing so archeological work. On his return back to the group, he gets blown of course to Admiralty.
Here he survives and befriends the dog. The dog shows him food sources so he follows the dog. The dog takes him on a 3 day journey through the woods to a cliff cave.
Inside the cave he finds beautiful murals and old artifacts. There are foods and weapons and elaborately carved chairs and tables. Who ever lives in the cave must own the dog.
He was lead t someones hideout. While looking at one of the murals, he hears a noise and turns around. He is now face to face with the wild man who has a spear in hand.
He runs to the back of the wild man's hideout and finds himself running for his life through a cave. Personally, I really enjoyed this book mainly due to the setting of the wild man's hideout.
It is a prehistoric cave with underwater rivers filled with salmon, emerald pools, bones and carvings of the earliest Americans, and deep chasms.
I also enjoyed it because of the relationship Andy has with the bears "When the bear was finished eating he turned around and planted himself at the foot of the log right next to me.
This book reminds me of Cabin on Trouble Creek because a boy, Daniel,is left to fend for himself. He becomes a great survivor and hunter, and is thus respected by the bears just like Andy.
But both Andy and Daniel were not always respected. They earned their place in nature's society by showing their power.
Andy fought a wolf and scared him off and Daniel killed a bear that was attacking him. This shows that respect is earned, not given.
A strength of this book was its cave description. It sounded like a dream place to explore. I cant really find a weakness in this book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes kayaking, survival stories, or just adventure. Oct 31, Dan H added it. In the survival story Wild Man Island by Will Hobbs, Andy Galloway fights for his life in the Alaskan wilderness, finding many interesting discoveries along the way.
Andy is on a vacation with his mother in Alaska. Andy's dad was an archeologist who died when he was on a find in Alaska. In the beginning, Andy travels out early one morning to find where his father may have died and got stuck in a river current and winds up on a deserted island.

Andy tries to get back home and along the way he finds a dog and a spear. The dog leads Andy to an old hut where he meets an old man.
Andy also explores a cave connected to the hut where he finds ancient bones and a special type of rock that his father had been looking for before he died.
The old man asks Andy to help him find his dog who ran away while Andy asks the old man how to get home. Andy learns that the old man is also an archeologist who has been lost on the island for many years.
After further adventures, the old man, Andy and the dog eventually escape in an old boat. Since this is a survival story, there are not a lot of characters, but I found that the wild man was my favorite character in the book.
Will Hobbs made the wild man initially seem like a mean hermit-like person. As the story moves along, we learn that the wild man really has two sides to him.
Although the wild man was angry with Andy at first for being in his hut, it turns out that he is a very caring man who wants to help Andy.
Andy gets to know more about the old man and his past during his time on the island. Because Andy's dad was an archeologist, he and the old man have a lot in common.
In turned out that the old man actually had heard of Andy's father. By the end of their time on the island, the old man continued to teach Andy about the land around him and some of its history.
It turns out that the old man, David Atkins, is an intelligent and caring man. Overall, I thought this was a very good book. I would recommended this book to others because I like this type of genre.
Therefore, I would suggest this book to other people who like survival and adventure stories and stories of nature.
However, some parts of the book I was not happy about because maybe it wasn't realistic. For example, when Andy was almost rescued by a helicopter, he did not beg to go home and instead stuck around with some biologists.
Although this may have seemed like a bad decision by Andy at the time, it turns out that by staying on the island, Andy got to know the old man better and gained a life-long friend.
Overall, this was a great book, well-written, but has a few points that were not realistic. However this does not ruin the book at all.

Even though the book was fiction, it was also filled was facts about the first Americans and stories of how people crossed the land bridge from Russia to Alaska.
It was fast-paced, and throughout reading the novel it never bored me. Overall I enjoyed this Novel and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Mar 02, David L rated it really liked it. An interesting book about a 14 teen-year-old Boy named Andy who get stranded on an island filled with bears.
Andy was on a kayaking trip in Alaska to see whales, when he decides to secretly go slightly of course to visit the place where his dad died.
After visiting the place of his father's death, Andy tries heading back to his group but gets swept off course with a storm.
Andy has zero supplies and has to survive on an island full of bears. I liked how the book told us where An Wild Man Island: I liked how the book told us where Andy got most of is information from on the land and the native animals.
For example, Andy was debating on eating wild shellfish. The reason he was debating eating shellfish was because he remembered that his tour guide Julia said that some of the shellfish are poisonous.
These added details made the book more believable. I would recommend this book for people who want a quick read and like survival books with a hint of mystery.
If this book was part of a series, I don't think I would read the next book because this book ended with a solid ending that answers all major questions, plus I'm not a huge fan of survival books.

Andy is on a whale watching trip on his kayak when a storm hits and he is he gets stranded on an island with a wild man. Andy is cold, hungry, tired and afraid of the wild man and he has to survive.
I found out that Will Hobbs wrote this book because he likes adventures and nature so he wants to share how wild nature can be.
I connected with the book because I have been in big storms in small boats like Andy. I was reminded to take off your clothes if you are wet and cold so that you don't stay cold.
Andy did this in the book but he kept his underwear on. I don't recomend this book because it is hard to follow and poorly written. For example, it was hard to tell if Andy was rescued by a helicopter or not.
Say you've been stranded on an island off Alaska for a week with no food, fire, or shoes and finally you were rescued by a passing helicopter.
Would you a kiss the ground the helicopter walks on; b take the controls yourself and fly yourself out of there; or c help the crew on their original mission then run back into the island without telling them.

Nov 11, Dayna Smith rated it really liked it Shelves: Andy Galloway is 14 and on a kayaking trip to Alaska. After taking a Russian language course, Wild became the Royal Navy 's transport officer at Archangel , where he superintended the war materials which arrived during the Allied intervention in Russia.
From to Wild was second-in-command of the Shackleton—Rowett Expedition , a poorly equipped expedition with no clear plan, and a small ship, the Quest.
Shackleton died of a heart attack on South Georgia during the expedition, and Wild took over command and completed the journey, combating unfavourable weather to Elephant Island and along the Antarctic coast.
They had first met in when Wild was serving in Russia, and he had assisted her to obtain a passage home to England. He bought some land in the Mkuzi valley in Zululand where he tried to grow cotton.
The enterprise was a financial disaster and after five years of drought followed by flood, Wild gave up. Next he was involved in railway construction and for a time had some success with a contract to extend the South African railway to the border with Swaziland.
However, the contract ended and he was forced to seek employment elsewhere. Wild's marriage to Vera was in difficulty shortly after arriving in Zululand and she asked for a divorce, which became absolute on 27 December Next, Wild took a temporary job as a hotel barman at Gollel in Swaziland which was owned by a friend of his.
Caught in the Depression, he was forced to move from job to job, including working as a battery manager at a diamond mine which went bankrupt, prospecting in Rhodesia and managing a quarry.
He subsidised his meagre income by giving the occasional lecture on the Endurance expedition. He married for the second time on 18 March They settled in Germiston where in he worked supervising a stone-crushing machine at a Witwatersrand gold mine.
Very happily married, the following four years saw relative peace and calm and Wild earned enough money not only to buy a car a Wolseley but to take two well needed holidays in the hinterland and coast of South Africa.
Due to ill health he was forced to leave the mining job and he was given a job by his brother-in-law Pat O'Brien Frost to oversee the building of Frost's house in Haenertsburg in the Eastern Transvaal.
However, he had little respect for Frost; that and the demands of building the house in an extremely remote part of the country caused him to return to Johannesburg.
By now he was in poor health but retained his characteristic kind, calm countenance. With the offer of a job as a store-keeper on the Babrosco Mine near Klerksdorp from his friend Jack Scott, the mining magnate, he and Trixie finally found the peace they were seeking.
He had also been awarded the Civil List pension from Downing Street. He was cremated on 23 August at the Braamfontein Cemetery in Johannesburg.
On 27 November the ashes of Frank Wild, Shackleton's "right-hand man", were interred on the right-hand side of Shackleton's grave site in Grytviken , South Georgia ; the ashes had previously been found in the vault of Braamfontein Cemetery, Johannesburg, by journalist and author Angie Butler while researching a book.
The inscription on the rough-hewn granite block set to mark the spot reads "Frank Wild —, Shackleton's right-hand man.
Wild's relatives and Shackleton's granddaughter, the Hon. Butler said, " His ashes will now be where they were always supposed to be.
It just took them a long time getting there. They are available from the Falkland Islands Philatelic Bureau.
