The River (Brians Saga, #2) by Gary PaulsenWe want you to do it again.
These words, spoken to Brian Robeson, will change his life. Two years earlier, Brian was stranded alone in the wilderness for fifty-four days with nothing but a small hatchet. Yet he survived. Now the government wants him to do it again to go back into the wilderness so that astronauts and the military can learn the survival techniques that kept Brian alive.
This time he wont be alone: Derek Holtzer, a government psychologist, will accompany him to observe and take notes. But during a freak storm, Derek is hit by lightning and falls into a coma. Their radio transmitter is dead. Brian is afraid that Derek will die of dehydration unless he can get him to a doctor. His only hope is to build a raft and try to transport Derek a hundred miles down the river to a trading post if the map he has is accurate.
Few books for this audience are as timeless and gripping as Hatchet and the other books of The Brian Saga. These books are more than just adventure and survival stories. Brian not only has to deal with the elements, but he must also come to terms with his parents divorce and his own feelings of isolation and disconnection in the world. If you have a reluctant reader, recommend Hatchet. Your students or child won't be able to put it down and will be eager to dive into the next book in the series. And if you haven't read them yourself, you really should.
Im overall satisfied with my purchase. I dont agree with it taking nearly 2 weeks for a book thats in stock to get to me.
one direction save you tonight live

On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness. More than a survival story, Hatchet is a tale of tough decisions. When all is stripped down to the barest essentials, Brian discovers some stark and simple truths. Self-pity doesn't work. Despair doesn't work.
