Phillip writes the following about Hatchet :
Do you think you could survive in the Canadian wilderness with just your instincts and a hatchet? In Gary Paulsen?s book, Hatchet, the main character, Brian Robeson, does just that. He survives in the wilderness for 54 days by using his instincts and a hatchet- a present he got from his mother.

Brian is being flown to see his father in the Canadian wilderness for the summer, after the divorce of his parents, But as they are flying along, the pilot of the plane has a heart attack. Brain is then put in a situation on how to land the plane. After he got the plane landed in the water, that was just the beginning for Brian. He encountered many other things with animals and nature.

Hatchet is one of the best books I have ever read. Lit is a great book for you if you like adventure. Gary Paulsen makes you think about survival and adventure. I recommend this book to people who like the wilderness.
