Publisher's Summary

In Hatchet, 13-year-old Brian Robeson learned to survive alone in the Canadian wilderness, armed only with his hatchet. Finally, as millions know, he was rescued at the end of the Summer. But what if Brian hadn't been rescued? What if he had been left to face his deadliest enemy - Winter?

Gary Paulsen raises the stakes for survival in this riveting and inspiring story as one boy confronts the ultimate test and the ultimate adventure.

What the critics say

"Paulsen at his best." ( Booklist)
"Breathtaking....mesmerizing. ( School Library Journal)
"Paulsen crafts a companion/sequel to Hatchet containing many of its same pleasures....Read together, the two books make his finest tale of survival yet." ( Kirkus Reviews)

It was okay

I thought that this story was okay because it was. Also I thought that the guy who was reading it had a voice that was very boring and I fell asleep all the time.

Awesome book

I read the first book in the first book in t(e Siberia’s and I thought it was good but then I listened to his. This book went far beyond my expectations for a book about outdoor survival. This is one of my favourite books easily.
