    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.

    Overall

    This is a story about a young boy, aged about 12, whose parents are divorcing. He is on his way to visit his father in the Canadian wilderness when a disaster occurs. The pilot has a heart attack and dies, mid-flight, and the boy must figure out how to get the plane to land and then survive in the Canadian wilderness until help arrives. My son read it in 6th grade and loved it, and he really hated to read. It does have some mature themes -- divorce, infidelity, and death -- so is not suitable for K-4 or K-5 children. It is, however, an enthralling story that pre-teens and young adolescents enjoy.
