The book Mr. Tucket is a very good book. It is about a boy named Francis Tucket who is traveling west on the Oregon Trail and gets a rifle for his birthday. He falls behind and gets captured by an Indian tribe. Mr. Grimes, a mountain man, helps him escape from the tribe and teaches Francis how to survive in the wilderness.
Gary Paulsen wrote this book and many other great books. This one is extra special because the reader learns about how Indians have different ways of living their life and culture. Every single page of the book is exciting and interesting. I couldn’t stop reading it. I recommend this book for kids 8 years and older. Mr. Tucket is my favorite book.
