As we learn about nature, Gary Paulsen's Woodsong will help show how nature works. Paulsen's memoir is honest, and we, as readers, seemingly get to learn right alongside Gary Paulsen as he prepares for his first Iditarod race. This book will be used to pull out the dynamics of nature and apply them to our studies in life science. When done with the reading, the students will compose a memoir of their own.
