    In Hatchet, 13-year-old Brian Robeson learned to survive alone in the Canadian wilderness, armed only with his hatchet. Finally, as millions of readers know, he was rescued at the end of the summer. But what if Brian hadn't been rescued? What if he had been left to face his deadliest enemy - winter?

    Hatchet was so awesome that I had to hear this sequel. At first I thought it was weird that it was an alternate ending to Hatchet, but in the end I enjoyed it even more. The high detail of how Brian learned to survive was realistic and fun. You get a sense of how much the character had changed since the beginning of hatchet, so it's kind of a coming of age book. Anyone that dreams of living off the land will enjoy this. The reader was pretty good too.

    This book is as good or even better than the films. It needs to be canonized into the official Star Wars universe and made into a movie.

    First published in 1719, Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe is commonly considered as the first novel in English. Based on the real-life experience of Alexander Selkirk, who spent four years on a Pacific island, it is the account of the 28-year stay of an English sailor on a nearly uninhabited island near America.

    Rachael says: "Perfect for a 4th grader following along!"

    I liken the experience to cutting yourself then pouring lemon juice on the wound. I bet the story is good though.

    Newbery Award-winner Gary Paulsen's best-known book comes to audio in this breathless, heart-gripping drama about a boy pitted against the wilderness with only a hatchet and a will to live. On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.

    A User says: "the whole family loved it!!!"

    This book is so much better than the movie. The details of how badly he failed at the beginning and how much he learned gave me a feeling of a true survival story. Anyone that dreams of living off the land will enjoy this book. It was so good I had to listen to all the sequels. Awesome reader too.
