Author Info
Gary Paulsen
Gary Paulsen is the author of many critically acclaimed books for young people, including three Newbery Honor Books.
"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."
From the Publisher
First Line Brian Robeson stared out the window of the small plane at the endless green northern wilderness below.
Annotation Thirteen-year-old Brian is going to visit his father for the first time since his parents' divorce. Haunted by his secret knowledge of his mother's infidelity, Brian wonders how he will face his father who is now living in the Canadian wilderness. When the single-engine plane he is traveling on crashes, Brian is the only survivor. Now stranded in wilderness with only the clothes on his back and the hatchet his mother gave him as a parting gift, Brian must find a way to survive.
Annotation 2 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.
Editors Note After a plane crash, thirteen-year-old Brian spends fifty-four days in the Canadian wilderness, learning to survive with only the aid of a hatchet given him by his mother, and learning also to survive his parents' divorce.
