"We want you to do it again."
These words, spoken to Brian Robeson, will change his life. Two years earlier, Brian was stranded alone in the wilderness for fifty-four days with nothing but a small hatchet. Yet he survived. Now the government wants him to do it again -- to go back into the wilderness so that astronauts and the military can learn the survival techniques that kept Brian alive.
This time he won't be alone: Derek Holtzer, a government psychologist, will accompany him to observe and take notes. But during a freak storm, Derek is hit by lightning and falls into a coma. Their radio transmitter is dead. Brian is afraid that Derek will die of dehydration unless he can get him to a doctor. His only hope is to build a raft and try to transport Derek a hundred miles down the river to a trading post -- if the map he has is accurate.

Annotation:
In this sequel to "Hatchet", Brian Robeson is asked by the Canadian government to show them how he survived on his own in the Canadian wilderness for 54 days with nothing but a small hatchet. This time, Brian will be tracked by a psychologist who will take note of all that he does in order to help train astronauts and the military. Brian agrees, but when the project goes wrong and the psychologist is hurt, he must fight to save not only himself, but also the wounded psychologist.
