Brian's Winter

Author: Gary Paulsen
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

You're all alone in the northern Canadian woods, memories of the plane crash wandering through your mind. All you have to survive is a solitary hatchet, and your knowledge of that summer in the wilderness. Will you make it out alive? Or will you suffer the cruel fate of a northern winter? Brian survived. In this book written by Gary Paulsen, it tells the story of what would have happened if Brian hadn't been rescued the previous summer in his other award winning book Hatchet. Be with Brian as he explored the woods, learning about nature. See him revel in glory as he slays three animals with the same arrow. Learn of his discovery of snowshoes and his first moose kill. If you enjoy books that take you to distant places and make you feel that you're really there, then Brian's Winter will be at the top of your list.
