Brian Robeson stared out the window of the small plane at the endless green northern wilderness below. (from the first line)
Paulsens Newbery Honor Book tells the story of 13-year-old Brian Robeson, the sole survivor of a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness. This 20th anniversary commemorative edition features a fresh new look and a new reading group guide, along with new content from the author. Illustrations.
From the Publisher:
Headed for Canada to visit his father for the first time since his parents' divorce, thirteen-year-old Brian is the sole survivor of a plane crash, with only the clothes he has on and a hatchet to help him live in the wilderness. A Newbery Honor Book. Reprint.
Annotation:
Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson was devastated when his parents divorced and his father took a job working in the far off oil fields of Canada. Traveling to visit his dad for the first time since the divorce, Brian survives a plane crash that kills the airplane's pilot--the only other person aboard the small aircraft. Stranded in the wilderness, Brian must rely only on his wits, and the hatchet given to him by his mother, as he struggles to survive. In the process, he also begins to come to terms with his parents' divorce. HATCHET is the book that first introduced readers to Brian Robeson, a character the author revisits in such other works as BRIAN'S RETURN, BRIAN'S WINTER, THE RIVER, and BRIAN'S HUNT.
Author Bio
Gary Paulsen
Gary Paulsen is the author of many critically acclaimed books for young people, including three Newbery Honor Books.

Praise

"This is a heart-stopping story: it seems that at every moment Brian is forced to face a life-and-death decision, and every page makes readers wonder at the density of descriptive detail Paulsen has expertly woven together. Poetic texture and realistic events are combined to create something beyond adventure, a book that plunges readers into the cleft of the protagonist's experience." 8/14/1987
