One day, Brian goes on a trip to his dad’s since his mom and his dad were divorced. Before going, his mom gives Brian a hatchet which was his gift. A pilot flies a plane to Brian’s dad’s place, but after a while the pilot suddenly had a heart attack and lost control of the plane. Brian knew he had to do something that the pilot had taught him, so Brian made the plane gain back its control in order to fly. The plane had run low on gas which made the plane go down crashing through a forest near a lake. Brian is now on his own in the forest finding everything he could to survive with only a hatchet and himself.
In the book Hatchet by: Gary Paulson, a boy named Brian survives in a forest with only a hatchet and his own experiences. I would rate Hatchet a four and a half stars out of five because it is a good read for people who like adventure and survival. I like this book because it shows how Brian survives in many unique ways by using what he only has for a very long time.
