When he was in the forest he got used to getting his own food instead of other people. To recapitulate, some ways Brian changed are that he experienced weight loss, he became a better problem solver, he was better able survive on his own, and he was amazed at everyday life. How do you think you would change if you went through what Brian went
9/14 I was on my way to Hawaii for my honeymoon with my beautiful new wife, Carrie Underwood. We were flying in style, private jet with expensive champagne. We were about to fly over the Great Smoky Mountains When out of nowhere a dragon twice the size of the plane took our wing off and sent us into a free fall right into the side of a mountain. I managed to get my parachute on and was about to help Carrie with hers when I got sucked out of the side of the plane. As soon as my feet hit the ground I was off like a bat out of hell towards the crash.
Picture this! You are a thirteen year-old boy names Brian Robeson. You just watched the pilot of your single passenger plane suffer a heart attack. You somehow managed to keep the plan going and have just crashed it into a lake. Then you nearly drown and now need to find a way to survive.
Many of the people that I spoke to about had some connection t the event, whether personally or via a close family member or friend. People have told me about being grounded for days at a time for days after, when flying was stopped to ensure American security, the tale of a sister who was in New York that Friday, how her family lost track of her when the city cell-phone towers were off and the relief when she was finally found safe and sound. One story sticks in my mind, a pregnant lady who was driving in her car across a New York bridge when the events happened. The lady tells me of how the roads suddenly, inexplicably, emptied and how she was worried that authorities might think that the lone driver on the road was a terrorist
The Hatchet represents everything Brian can do in the wilderness. It is sort of like a pocketknife because Brian uses it for so many things. The Hatchet is a tool originally used to chop down wood. Brain used it to make a fire, cut down wood, get food, make weapons, and protect himself. The hatchet is a useful tool to Brian, he made a spear wit the hatchet and is saving the Hatchet for something more important than hunting.
About everyone on the plane is quite not realizing what will happen. Not but another 30 minutes later the lights start to flicker on and off repeatedly. For the next 5 minutes of the harsh screaming and flickering didn’t worry Samuel a bit he knew what was about to happen, he’d been on this flight more than once. Then the lights went dark everyone on board was screaming at their loudest confused about what was happening. The captain tried to reassure everyone, “ It’s okay everybody, I’ll get the lights back on in a second.” Then right after that the lights were
For instance, many civilians that came to the crash site claimed that they saw corpses of small beings that had big and circular heads, no hair, and eyes with unusual spacing (Steiger and Steiger). In addition, to people who visited the crash site in person, or saw pictures in newspapers, they knew it was not a weather balloon that had crashed. Many believe it was an unidentified flying object, or UFO (“Roswell”). Correspondingly, Jesse Marcel said that the debris could not be properly identified. The debris had strange markings and some of the materials couldn’t be damaged (Tribble).
Perhaps the most significant incident in Brian’s life was when his plane crashed while traveling to his father’s place in Canada. While he was in the Canadian wilderness, Brian gave up until he remembered his teacher Perpich. Brian remembers Perpich and how he always said to “get motivated”(Paulsen). This made him try to survive and not just sit there and wait for people to rescue him. “You are your most valuable asset.
