Publisher's Summary

Millions of readers of Hatchet, The River, Brian’s Winter, and Brian’s Return know that Brian Robeson is at home in the Canadian wilderness. He has stood up to the challenge of surviving alone in the woods. He prefers being on his own in the natural world to civilization.

When Brian finds a dog one night, a dog that is wounded and whimpering, he senses danger. The dog is badly hurt, and as Brian cares for it, he worries about his Cree friends who live north of his camp. His instincts tell him to head north, quickly. With his new companion at his side, and with a terrible, growing sense of unease, he sets out to learn what happened. He sets out on the hunt.

Good Listen!

Any additional comments?

Brian’s Hunt is the fifth book in the Brian’s Saga series by Gary Paulsen. Once again, Brian is alone in the Canadian wilderness… voluntarily. In this book, he encounters a new adventure, where his survival skills are tested to their limits. He helps to heal a wounded dog, which becomes a companion and significant part of his story. Brian’s Hunt is just as engaging and exciting as all of the other books in the Brian’s Saga series. It’s a great read.

Was great but too much gore.

This book has more gore than the other books in the series! I was surprised at how morbid the last half was. I’m thirteen and this book was a little much. I would not suggest this for the faint of heart. But still loved this book.

A nice conclusion

A nice story to complete a book series that I started when I was a kid, I really enjoyed Brian's adventures and lessons he learned for out these books. The plot of the final book is exciting and Fun. I do not know if a Hunt for dangerous world animal is within brain's abilities, but it is interesting to see him in that kind of like.

Brian’s Hunt

This was good till the ending. It became horrible. I guess it was one way the author kept people from writing him, demanding more of the great story. Really enjoyed the whole series, till the end. The end really turned me off. To violent compared to the other books.
