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 main conflict all starts with a single sentence: The plane is going down. Spoiler, Hatchet’s main character, Brain, survives. And so the adventure begins. Well, a nightmare describes his experience a little better. Stuck in the Canadian wilderness,
For example, when Brian catches fish, he remembers from his science class, that the refraction of light on water changes the way the things look underwater. In the Epilogue, after being rescued, Brian did some research on the plants and animals he encountered in the woods, and he learned their real names and traits. I also admire him for his willingness to learn. Third, Brian became a real man in the woods. He gained ability to observe and became more patient and thoughtful for the natural world.
Brian prepares himself for winter performing all of the necessary survival tasks. Brian experiences initiation When you faces even greater challenges such as the bear and the moose. Brian experiences his return when he discovers a log cabin in the woods that belongs to a trapping family. They call a cargo plane for him, and he gets on it,
The book of Hatchet written by Gary Paulsen is a story about surviving in the wild as alone. Through his story, Gary Paulsen tells the readers that big courage need in every hard situation. The story begins when the plane fell from virtue. While Brian Robeson, thirteen years old, is going to his father who divorced with his mother, The pilot in the plane died by a heart attack. Despite, he tried to put down the plane instead of the pilot, the plane made a emergency landing at one lake, located in the forest.
The first couple of weeks were very hard for Brian. He was getting frustrated with himself and he just didn’t want to try. He spent many days just sitting there, wishing for food and wishing somebody would come and get him. I think this was very hard for Brian, mainly because he didn’t know what to do with himself. When it came time to where he desperately needed a fire, he started getting even more mad at himself because he was having all of these memories and he couldn’t understand how to make a fire in order to survive.
They were O’Brien’s friends during the fight and they were all but numbers after the war, or distant memories. The themes of the novel are the importance of paying homage friends and honoring their sacrifice are prevalent throughout. One example that describes how O’Brien paid homage to his friends resides in Norman Bowker, one of O’Brien’s close friends. Norman Bowker was not as outgoing as many other men in O'Brien's platoon, but Bowker did have a good personality and he was a good friend. After the war Bowker and O’Brien actually kept in touch with each other by occasionally writing letters.
You Are Your Most Valuable Asset Gary Paulsen’s survival novel, Hatchet, tells the story of Brian Robeson, a thirteen-year-old boy whose plane crashes after the pilot has a heart attack, leaving him stranded in the Canadian wilderness. He spends fifty-four days near an L-shaped lake, surviving nature 's unforgiving atmosphere with only his hatchet as a tool and his thoughts as a friend. Furthermore, Brian learns that he is his most important resource, and this is later proven to be the main theme of the story. The theme you are your best resource is shown throughout the novel when Brian when he makes fire, and when he retrieves the survival pack from the plane. Initially, Brian shows how he has to rely on himself when he lands the plane,
I think Hatchet tells the story better. Because it gave more details for example ,when Brian found blueberries you can could imagine him crushing, them with his teeth and swallowing the sweet juice. In A Cry In A Wild he just eats them. And when Brian had a dream of his dad and Terry of fire that was great foreshadowing. In A Cry In The Wild there was no dream not even a Terry.
