The book I choice to read was, “Brian’s Winter”, by Gary Paulsen. This book is about Brian after the private plane he was flying in crashes in to the rugged forests of Canada. Brian went through many struggles while trying the best he could to survive in the harsh environment. Some of the biggest events in this story include when he is attacked by a bear, during the major storms and some of his questionable encounters with the wolves. If I were telling a friend about the entire story in two minutes I would say, Brian’s parents were divorced leading him to visit his father for the first time in a long time.
"The Snow Walker " is a tale of adventure and survival. A story about how the main characters are going to survive in Northern Territories of Canada after a plane crash. Set in the 1950s, it features an arrogant white pilot, Charlie Halliday, who was bribed with walrus tusks into taking a sick Inuit girl to a big city hospital. He is an ignorant racist. At the opening scene of the movie, we can see how he scoffed at being called "Brother" by an Inuit.
Throughout the story “into the wild”, Chris after months of “living off the land” in Alaska, starves to death in his bus after finally finding a moose which gave him hope, but since he had not eaten in days and it was infested with flies and bugs, he passes away. He could not eat the moose without obtaining a disease and getting sick. Likewise, in the short story “to build a fire”, the man is faced against harsh weather conditions of 70 below 0 while walking through the Yukon trail for many hours. After falling in the river, the man sits down underneath a tree, and passes away due to his fire being put out by the snow and limited matches.
About a quarter way through the lake, they find themselves in a massive snowstorm and must find cover quickly. Torak finds a snow berm with a slight opening and looks around for Renn. She is nowhere to be seen and he assumes she already found cover, so Torak climbs in and seals the entrance. Inside he find an old skeleton holding onto a lamp, and figures that that is the last item, so he takes it and waits out the storm. When the storm calms, Torak goes out and looks for Renn.
Powerful or Powerless The novel Lord of the Flies by William Golding is an interesting novel that shows many different circumstances that happen to civilization, for better or for worse, through the actions of children. Ralph, the main character, opens the novel up with Piggy. The two boys are strolling through the woods on this island that they have been stranded on. They had survived a horrible plane crash, fleeing the land that they came from, hoping to find somewhere safer to stay.
This happened in the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen. After this crash, the main character Brian finds himself stranded, by himself, with nothing more than himself. Brian survived 54 days until somebody finally found him. This is a huge accomplishment and I think it takes a special kind of person to be a part of it. This book shows how Brian became more patient with himself and it shows how he coped with himself.
The short story, “Every Little Hurricane,” displays examples of each issue the Native Americans face, mostly about painful memories and individual “storms” that the actual storm causes. For example, Victor was taken back to a vivid memory of Christmas when he was four, a year that he watched his Father heavily weep because he did not have the money to pay for gifts; he was so broke that he continuously opened and closed his wallet, hoping the result would be different each time(Alexie pg. 4-5). Another example of reconciling in the past is at the party, “But the storm that had caused their momentary anger did not die. Instead, it moved from Indian to Indian at the party, giving each a specific, painful memory”(Alexie pg.

I can really see what the lake looks like from the characters point of view by using what he said about the shape and size of the lake. Another scene in which the author uses imagery well is when the pilot has in the middle of having a heart attack, Brian didn 't know what was going on with him.
