Item description for The World Is Our Home by David Rigby...
Hugging each other in fear we sat silently in our tent. Peeking through the front door we saw Mr. Rigby quietly getting out of his tent. We shuddered upon realizing he had an ax in his hand. Longer and much larger then my boat, curious mammals swam silently just under the surface of the just thawed arctic water. Carefully they began checking out the intrude- me. Blood was everywhere! Jordyn was crying for them not to put it back in and not to touch it! I could only. "Dave! Look at this! Tornadoes are heading right at where our trip is camped!" Diane exclaimed. My head began to spin. Tornadoes, no prescription. "But the Ozark canoe trip; that was my dream! That was my goal. I just had to go!" wrote twelve-year old student, Courtney Kramer, in her journal. "Hudson Bay! I want to paddle on Hudson Bay!" exclaimed fifty-four year old teacher, David Rigby, when asked what his dream was. Dreams! Teacher and student strive to make their dreams a reality but sometimes dreams don't turn out as expected. Then again, sometimes they are even better!

An enjoyable read Dec 12, 2007
After reading the first book, Challenges, I was anxious to read the next. This book is told in alternating chapters between Mr. Rigby's trip to kayak Hudson Bay and Courtney Kramer's trip to the Ozarks. I ended up reading the book in 1 day because I needed to know how events unfolded in each writer's story! It was well written, entertaining, and gave me a new appreciation for the majesty and beauty of the outdoors, both in the U.S. and in Canada. Mr. Rigby is able to bring out the best in his students. I hope there will be many more years of Ozark adventure's to come!
