Hatchet (Book)


Sold Out

Publishers Description

Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson, haunted by the knowledge of his mother's infidelity, is riding in a single-engine plane to visit his father for the first time since the divorce. When the plane crashes in the Canadian wilderness, Brian is the sole survivor, with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother had given him as a present. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Gary Paulsen's gripping Newbery Honor Book is presented here in a compact edition with a water-resistant soft cover—perfect for readers 10 to 14 to take along on their own adventures—as well as a new introduction and commentary by the author and ink drawings by Drew Willis.
