Brian through a his hatchet across the shelter. As he is throwing his hatchet he feels a lot of pain in his leg, he then realizes he has been struck by a porcupine. Once, Brian pulls the quills out of his leg, he starts to go back to sleep, once he is asleep he has a dream about his dad and his friend Terry. At the start of the dream, he sees his dad for a moment, but then he goes away, so he just sees Terry, and Terry shows him how to make a fire. As his time goes by living in the woods for weeks and months, he finally gets the chance, to go retrieve the survival pack from the plane.
That hatchet was the key to it all. When he threw the hatchet at the porcupine in the cave and missed and hit the stone wall it had showered sparks, a golden shower of sparks in the dark, as golden with fire as the sun…” highlights the aha moment. The sparks had given it away, and Brian had a faint idea of how to use his knowledge to his advantage. Fire was critical, and without it Brian would have starved, died. He cooked with it, boiled water.
To begin with in Hatchet, Brian Robeson pilot dies of a heart attack when on his way to his father’s home in Canada. Now Brian is forced to fly the plane and crashes in some lake then swims and saves himself. He may not be picked up that day or any day so it leaves brian alone to survive and live on his own. He is not prepared for anything like this and does not know how to survive in the wilderness. Which will change his life forever.
This all happened when brain went back into to the plane and got the survival bag. When brian first got it he turned on the transmitter and didn't think it worked. Then a guy picked up the signal and then saved brain. So in conclusion Hatchet is a great book. I like the book because it shows that you can survive with something as little s a hatchet.

Survival is the greatest and most recognizable theme that appears to the end. The first time survival becomes relevant in the novel is when Elie and his family, his father, mother, and three sisters, are in cattle cars on their way to Aushwitz after being taken from their homes.
