Publisher's Summary

Here are the real events that inspired Gary Paulsen to write Brian Robeson’s story in Hatchet, The River, Brian’s Winter, Brian’s Return, and Brian's Hunt: a stint as a volunteer emergency worker; the death that became the pilot’s death in Hatchet; plane crashes he’s seen; and his own near misses. He takes listeners on his first hunting trips, showing the wonder and solace of nature along with his hilarious mishaps and mistakes. He shares special memories, such as the night he attracted every mosquito in the county, and how he met the moose who made it personal.

    "Paulsen inspired me to do the same"

    As an outdoors adventure author many of the situations in my books reflect things in real life much like in Paulsen's. This book is a DVD extras type of story. I really enjoyed learning about his adventures and how they formed Brian's.

    "Not his best"

    It was kind of interesting to hear some of the things Paulsen has been through in his life, things that helped him to write some of his best novels. This one, a memoir of sorts, was not his best writing, but I still enjoyed it.
