Gary Paulsen ✓ Hatchet by Gary Paulsen Reader

Dvantage an invading porcupine unexpectedly shows him how to make fire a devastating tornado shows him how to retrieve supplies from the submerged airplane Most of all Brian leaves behind the self pity he has felt about his predicament as he summons the courage to stay alive A story of survival and of transformation this riveting book has sparked many a reader's interest in venturing into the wild Some books imprint themselves on your mind and stay with you You can remember vividly where you were when you first read them Hatchet is one of those books for me I remember being in Mrs Alison’s sixth grade class and this book was raging though the male half of my class like a wildfire Even boys who usually hated reading couldn’t put it down Obviously as the class’s self proclaimed ueen of the bookworms I wanted to know what all the fuss was about So when a copy finally made it back to the book cubbies that lined the back of the classroom I nabbed it And I totally saw what the fuss was aboutSurvival stories have been popular for centuries Robinson Crusoe Kidnapped The Swiss Family Robinson; even The Odyssey had survival aspects So what was so special about Hatchet? It was the story of a thirteen year old plane crash victim struggling to survive in the Canadian wilderness Alone With nothing but his hatchetThis was a main character who was close to our age Who was struggling to accept the recent divorce of his parents which was something that multiple kids in our class were going through and that the rest of us feared Who had absolutely none of the knowledge and skills seemingly necessary to make it in the wild Like the rest of us Seriously what middle school kid would actually know what to do if they were dropped in the woods alone with no supplies and no tools except for a hatchet? If we’re honest most of us as adults would have no clue what to do either One thing about kids though; they don’t know enough yet to doubt their ability to survive anything Kids believe that death doesn’t apply to them and in some ways that’s the only way one could survive this type of dire situationAnd survive Brian does But Paulsen doesn’t pull punches; this is not a romanticized survival story where food falls in the protagonist’s lap and they never get so much as a blister Brian gets put through the wringer This poor child get severely sunburned violently ill from bad fruit attacked by various forest dwellers and Not to mention the near starvation he is constantly battling As a twelve year old this book was terrifying and empowering and completely enthralling I’ve read it six times since then and it’s still all of those things with a healthy dose of nostalgia thrown in So thanks boys in my class for getting me interested If you’re a parent you should definitely get this book for your kids If you’re still a kid at heart and have never read this track down a copy You never know; the things you learn from this book could save your life if you ever get stranded alone in the middle of a forest For of my reviews as well as my own fiction and thoughts on life check out my blog Celestial Musings
