An excellent sequel. The military wants his help to improve survival training. So Brian finds this outing easier until Derek Holtzer, a government psychologist is hurt and now Brian has to take care of another person. Quick listen ( )

Not as good as Hatchet, but it's definitely Paulsen! ( )

Two years after Brian Robeson survived fifty-four days alone in the Canadian wilderness, the government wants him to head back so they can learn what he did to stay alive. This time Derek Holtzer, a government psychologist, will accompany him. But a freak storm leaves Derek unconscious. Brian's only hope is to transport Derek a hundred miles down the river to a trading post. He's survived with only a hatchet before--now can Brian build a raft and navigate an unknown river?
