For Caitlin, Matt and Nick Spille. This book was written for all those readers of Hatchet and The River who wrote (I received as many as two hundred letters a day) to tell me they felt Brian Robeson’s story was left unfinished by his early rescue before, they said, it became really hard going. They asked: What would happen if Brian hadn’t been rescued, if he had had to survive in the winter?

Gary Paulsen raises the stakes for survival in this riveting and inspiring story as one boy confronts the ultimate test and the ultimate adventure.

Author: Gary Paulsen. Publication date: 1998. Finally, as millions of readers know, he was rescued at the end of the summer. But what if Brian hadn’t been rescued? What if he had been left to face his deadliest enemy-winter? Gary Paulsen raises the stakes for survival in this riveting and inspiring story as one boy confronts the ultimate test and the ultimate adventure.

Gary Paulsen was born on May 17, 1939 in Minnesota. During the first few years of his life, his father was stationed in Europe during World War II and his mother worked in a factory. Paulsen was raised by his grandmother and aunts. He lived overseas after the war in the Phillippines between 1946-49. Ever since he was fifteen, he worked many jobs to support himself.

He had come to rely on his senses and he knew something had changed to snap him awake that way and he lay with his eyes wide in the dark, listening, smelling, trying to see. He did not have long. There was a soft rustle, then a whoofing sound and the whole wall of the shelter peeled away from the rock as if caught in an earthquake, away and down and Brian-still in his bag-was looking up in the dark at the enormous form of a bear leaning over him. There was no time to react, to move, to do anything

I bought this book to read with my 9 year old son, who is a big fan of Hatchet. We both enjoyed the book. From a parental standpoint, I thought it was well written, filled with excitement and interesting scenes. Compared to Hatchet, I thought it was better written as the story and the language flowed much better. The only thing I didn't love was the ending. It seemed rather abrupt. My son loved it though and interrupted me multiple times with his own thoughts and theories on winter survival. So, from that standpoint, it's a thought provoking winner.

My 10 year old son was reading this series. I am a Jack London fan and had heard this author compared to him so I thought I would read it, out of curiosity for the story and also to make sure I thought it was suitable for my kid to read.

The setting and story are indeed similar to many of London's stories, set in the arctic north with the protagonist fighting the elements to eke out survival. The story is aimed at 10-14 year old readers and that is the age of the protagonist. I thought it was realistic and gritty enough to be believable but without being too violent, sort of a "Jack London lite". The story moves along well and without any spoilers let's just say that the ending wasn't as brutally uncompromising as many of London's stories which I think is good for young readers.

The story touches briefly on some difficult topics such as the boy witnessing death, the boy's parents being separated due to an affair and the boy briefly considering suicide. I thought it appropriate to include these topics in the story, and it was done tastefully and without undue violence (drastically less violence than kids see in a typical movie or tv show). Children of this age face these topics in real life, and putting them in a story allows them to think about them and discuss them with parents and teachers.

My son read this for a Summer Reading Project. He has read the other books in the series and found this one just as good, better than the second book. For a boy who does not like to read, this kept him engrossed and he was able to finish it. He enjoys Gary Paulsen's books and wants to read more and that deserves an A+ from me!

I love it, a great alternate ending to Hatchet.. I was introduced to Hatchet back in school and about a month ago I bought a copy to read to my newborn son.. It was then that I stumbled onto this one, and, now, over ten years later, I bought every other Hatchet adventure and read them all twice within a week.. It’s easy reading, but packed full of adventure and peace.. Great books for all nature loving book worms, no matter how old..

My 9 year old LOVED Hatchet so we bought him all the books by Gary Paulsen. He says they all seem to follow the same literary "formula" just in different settings - winter, an island, etc but he loves the outdoors and adventure books so he enjoys them, despite their slight predictability.

This was recommended for my son by a friend who is a retired teacher. She knew my son was a bookworm and loved the outdoors type of adventures. She'd mentioned how both of her boys had loved it growing up so she had used it for her students in class as well. It is well written and great for teens or young adults! Both my sons loved it, so my husband got curious and read it too! Then I ordered them the rest in the "Brian" series! All were equally well received by all the "men in my house"!

It might seem like a boring read, but it was anything but... How this teenager survived was amazing. If you are going into the woods, you might want to read this before, just in case you get lost and are not found for many months. You will be glad you did.
I read "Hatchet" as an assignment in college. I was thrilled with Paulson's writing. I have read most of his books, but own all of Brian's stories. I gave my daughters the stories to read. They gave it to my grandkids. I hope my granddaughter continues the tradition with my great grandson.
