Into the Forest is one of those books that stays with you long after you've finished reading. It gets you to thinking about your own will to survive, and how you would fare if you found yourself in the same situation as the sisters in the book. What would you do? How well would you survive without having any modern conveniences? Recent natural disasters in the world have shown the importance of being prepared to take care of ourselves and our loved ones when our "normal" way of life is completely disrupted. This book is definitely food for thought.

i simply cannot rave enough about this book. It's simply stunning. The juxtaposition of the two sisters and what they experience is deeply intimate and heart felt. This book will move you in ways you never thought possible, and give you a new sense of humanities greatest and worst attributes. This is a book everyone can read and find a connection in.
A Classic!

"Review" by , "[M]esmerizing....Hegland's sweet and sadly elegiac tale is an engrossing coming-of-age adventure."
"Review" by , "[A] beautifully written and often profoundly moving novel."
"Review" by , "A work of extraordinary power, insight and lyricism, Into the Forest is both an urgent warning and a passionate celebration of life and love."
"Review" by , "From the first page, the sense of crisis and the lucid, honest voice of the...narrator pull the reader in....A truly admirable addition to a genre defined by the very high standards of George Orwell's 1984." Publishers Weekly
"Review" by , "This beautifully written story captures the essential nature of the sister bond: the fierce struggle to be true to one's own self, only to learn that true strength comes from what they are able to share together."
"Review" by , "Jean Hegland's sense of character is firm, warm, and wise....[A] fine first novel."
"Synopsis" by , This deeply felt story of two sisters struggling to survive amid the collapse of technology and society is at once a classic tale of mythic proportions--and a modern myth with a timely message. "Beautifully written and often profoundly moving".--"San Francisco Chronicle".
