Reading Series – The Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

Standard

50I first read ‘The Hatchet’ by Gary Paulsen when I was in grade school.  It was first published in 1987, and since then has been a classroom staple in the years following.  A story of survival, young Brian weathers the wilderness for 54 days after his plane crashes.  In his time there, he deals with how to survive, the death of the pilot and all the troubles in his home life. This is the first in a 5-book series and is definitely worth a read, especially if you have school aged children.
