This book contains a series of short chapters about experiences in the author's life that he used when he wrote Hatchet. His tales of childhood exploring the woods of northern Minnesota were fascinating. Recommended, especially for those like myself who appreciate his body of works. ( )

The true stories behind events he used in his story Hatchet with the main character Brian. Gary has a great sense of humor and I really liked it when he kicked the bear in the backside. ( )

This book could be used as an independent read for a 5th-grade student. A student of this age would be able to understand the language, it is not overly complex, and it is short enough and interesting enough for them to read. They would be drawn to the true stories he tells. I would just have it as an independent read because as far as standards go it doesn't help much, it's just a good book that someone interested in hunting or survival stories would enjoy.

First words
Perhaps the single most catastrophic event in Brian's life in Hatchet is when the pilot dies of a heart attack. This forces Brian to fly the plane and land-in little more than an "aimed" crash-in a lake, where he swims free and saves himself.
