On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.
More than a survival story, Hatchet
is a tale of tough decisions. When all is stripped down to the barest
essentials, Brian discovers some stark and simple truths: Self-pity
doesn't work. Despair doesn't work. And if Brian is to survive
physically as well as mentally, he must discover courage. From Goodreads.
A very good adventure book about survival. Brian finds out that survival is not as easy as it seems in the films. Brian also learns that a small mistake can become serious within a minute. It is an easy, catching read.
