Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father when the single-engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but a tattered Windbreaker and the hatchet his mother gave him as a present—and the dreadful secret that has been tearing him apart since his parent's divorce. But now Brian has no time for anger, self-pity, or despair—it will take all his know-how and determination, and more courage than he knew he possessed, to survive.

For twenty years Gary Paulsen’s award-winning contemporary classic has been the survival story with which all others are compared. This new edition, with a reading group guide, will introduce a new generation of readers to this page-turning, heart-stopping adventure.

    " I thought that Hatchet was okay. Let's put it this way, it was not my favorite book. I am not really a wilderness type person. For some reason I could never get into it. I found that Hatchet dragged. I felt like it kept repeating itself. I liked it towards the end. My favorite part was when he was rescued. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Alek Novak | 1/31/2014

    " I gave this book 4 stars because it was a good book overall. It was sad when the plane crashed down because he could have died. He is very lucky that his fathergave him a hatchet because if he didn't I dont think he would ahve made it living out there in the wilderness by him self. I know I would not have made it by myself out in the wilderness. "
