In Hatchet, 13-year-old Brian Robeson learned to survive alone in the Canadian wilderness, armed only with his hatchet. He was rescued at the end of the summer. Brian's Winter begins where Hatchet might have ended: Brian is not rescued, but must build on his survival skills to face his deadliest enemy--a northern winter.

    Lack of food, low supplies-will brian have what it takes to survive? I extremely recommend Brian's Winter, a book by Newbery author Gary Paulson. The book is a branch off of what might have happened if Brian was not rescued in the first book Hatchet. The book is mainly about how the harsh Canadian winter is coming and Brian is not prepared. He has to make new weapons, winterize camp, and physically prepare himself for the conditions. I would recommend this book to people who like suspense, realistic fiction, survival, etc. I would recommend this book to an age group of probably older elementary school through middle school but a great book that anyone can enjoy!

              I had to read this book for school, and I fell in love with it. It has some elements that I like; Good character development, a great lesson, a nice description, and nice action scenes. I give it a must read.

                  This book is great is just pure genious made Gary Paulson. Another great master piece that makes you feel like your right there or you want to be in this situation yourself like me I mean its great, and remember: Don't mess with a MOOSE or you get the ANTLERS. A little hint that will tell whats going to happen in... "Brian's Winter".

                    I read this book in 5th grade, and now I'm reading it again in 6th. It's so nice to know what would've happened to Brian if he left the radio transmitter off!
