The government wants him to teach the military about the survival tactics he used, with a government psychologist at his side to observe and take notes. Brian agrees and the two set off, but things don't go as planned. During a violent thunderstorm, the psychologist is hit by lightning and it's up to Brian to save him.
Readers of Hatchet will absolutely love this follow-up novel! Paulsen, as always, pulls no punches: a scene in which Brian fantasizes about cutting Derek loose from the raft is as powerful as they come. How many times have you read a book and wondered about other possible endings? We know we have! Brian's Winter does just that, providing an alternate ending to the first book in the series, Hatchet. This book presents an entirely different scenario in which Brian wasn't rescued at the end of the summer. Instead, he was forced to face the most lethal danger in the vast, unforgiving wilderness: a harsh Canadian winter.
The author's ability to cast a spell, mesmerize his audience, and provide a clinic in winter survival is reason enough to buy this novel Paulsen fans will not be disappointed. After facing life and death experiences in the wilderness, Brian is having a hard time navigating ordinary life back in civilization. He feels disconnected the life around him and even more isolated at his high school than he did when he was alone in the wilderness.
He decides the only way to address these feelings is to return to the Canadian wilderness to try and find himself and discover his own true path in life.
