Survival in the wilderness - Gary Paulsen writes about it so powerfully in his novels Hatchet, The River, Brian's Winter, Brian's Return, and Brian's Hunt because he's lived it. These essays recount his adventures alone and with friends, taking listeners through the seasons. In Paulsen's north country, every expedition is a major one, and often hilarious. Once again Gary Paulsen demonstrates why he is one of America's most beloved writers, for he shows us fishing and hunting as pleasure, as art, as companionship, and as source of life's deepest lessons.

    " i really liked this book. if it was all just one story, it would get tiresome. but since it was all short stories focusing on one characters life, in was good. the book was simple, and explanitory. you could tell it was about a long time ago, because they were paid 7 cents a day. "

    " Beautifully written, often funny, and occasionally poignant. Though this is billed as a collection of essays, it really reads more as a memoir of a boyhood in nature. "
