Product description

This award-winning contemporary classic is the survival story with which all others are compared--and a page-turning, heart-stopping adventure, recipient of the Newbery Honor. Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father when the single-engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but a tattered Windbreaker and the hatchet his mother gave him as a present--and the dreadful secret that has been tearing him apart since his parent's divorce. But now Brian has no time for anger, self pity, or despair--it will take all his know-how and determination, and more courage than he knew he possessed, to survive.

Purchased this book for my 13 year old son for recreational reading - the book is on the NSW Govt English syllabus for Year 8 (Australia) which is why I selected it.
He is presently on school holidays and as soon as he received the book and started to read it, he could not put it down. I will certainly be selecting more novels from Gary Paulsen.

A terrific, beautifully written survival story, perfect for 10-12 year old boys. I have used this book as a novel study for both Year 5 and Year 7 boys with great success.
