Publisher's Summary

As millions of readers of Hatchet, The River, and Brian's Winter know, Brian Robeson survived alone in the wilderness by finding solutions to extraordinary challenges. But now that's he's back in civilization, he can't find a way to make sense of high school life. He feels disconnected, more isolated than he did alone in the North. The only answer is to return-to "go back in"-for only in the wilderness can Brian discover his true path in life, and where he belongs.

Another great book in the series

I loved the first book and thought the second was OK. But books 3 and 4 renewed my love for this series! Great story and great performance by the reader.

Great story, good reader, ok background music

Brian's return has a great story, the reader does a good job, but the background music is alright, but a little dramatic, great job overall.

Another Excellent Installment!

I'm a huge fan of this series! I couldn't stand the "dramatic" music in this audiobook version though. Again...big fan but wow, that music was annoying.

the woods within

Exciting Listen

Any additional comments?

Brian’s Return is the fourth book in the Brian’s Saga series by Gary Paulsen. I read Hatchet and Brian’s Winter with my 10-year-old grandson. My husband had joined us for the reading of Brian’s Winter. He, too, became hooked on the story, so we decided to listen to book 4, Brian’s Return, on our way home to NJ. It was a little bit different. As you can tell from the title, this time Brian voluntarily returns to the woods. The why and how are explained, along with a different survival adventure. Both my husband and I loved the book. It was a great audiobook and helped make a long road trip go quickly. Definitely a good read and/or listen!
