Brian sets out on the hunt of a lifetime in this follow-up to the award-winning classic Hatchet from three-time Newbery Honor-winning author Gary Paulsen

Brian Robeson has stood up to the challenge of surviving the wilderness in Hatchet, The River, Brian's Winter, and Brian's Return. Now, while camping alone on a lake in the woods, he finds a wounded and whimpering dog. As Brian treats her wounds, he worries about who or what did this to her. His instincts tell him to head north, quickly, to check on his Cree friends. With his new companion at his side, he sets out on the hunt.

Gary Paulsen expertly delivers a riveting story that brilliantly combines two of his great themes: the human animal's place in nature, and the mysterious and wonderful bond between humans and dogs.

The Brian books reveal nature and humankind's place in it with spare prose that seems ideally suited to the setting and plot. --VOYA

Based on real incidents, this well-written sequel to Hatchet and its successors will be gobbled up by the author's legions of fans. --Kirkus Reviews

   Great storytelling
Brian is a wonderful character who has been changed by his survival of the crash. We are given a chance to experience the woods from his perspective. The crash and nature's harsh lessons that followed made him rethink his attitude towards learning, civilization and independence. He taught us in a calm voice about wildlife, despite the dangers he has to face in this saga. Brian is to be commended for his knowledge and Paulsen's mature handling of life and death issues. This book was a pleasure to read because its vocabulary was challenging and appropriately descriptive for teen readers, and satisfying for adults.
   The best book ever!
There is so much action and Brian is so smart and makes great choices that will help me to be brave and courageous.
   Stunned and Shocked
I have read the 5th books in this series and enjoyed reading them with my first grader. This book is not a classic one. Of the way through it, it DESCRIBES a BEAR Mauling in DETAIL and killing a family. Descriptions that give nightmares!
   Loved this book
We finish this book over the summer. I read Hatchet only before this and I read it as a child and then again as an adult. I wish I could read more about Brian. They wanted to survive him. In my opinion, this book shows the “ coming of age ” of Brian and the end of his childhood. The change between him and the first book to this is immense! It is a great tool to teach dynamic characters in novels. I love it and I wish there was more to read!
My 10 year old son turned the entire set as quickly as he read the pages. Then the entire family regaled with daring feats of strength and determination from the books every night at the dinner table. Those interactions were in the series alone worth the price of each book.
   Great series
I like that most of the events in the series happened to the author really.
   Short but not satisfying
I read The Hatchet when I was a little kid and led the river and Brian's winter later in the high school. I'm 32 and after reading the full series again, I gotta say, I am not sure who became Brian. He seemed to spend as much time in the nature around him as he did in the developed world. It can be seen as a balance, but it felt sour to me. He changed from a boy who had learned true gratitude in existence and the purity of nature to a young man who wanted to disassociate himself from everyone he considered sick ''. That said, I enjoyed all the books and respect the decisions Paulsen made for Brian. His triumph over the bear felt meaningful even if we never fully experienced the bond he developed with David and Anne's family.
   Perfect for 10-12 year olds
Both my 12 year old son and my 10 year old daughter really enjoyed this book series. My 10 year old is a reluctant reader, but really enjoyed the adventure and survival aspects of these books.
   Another Great Brian Book For You To Read!
I love Brian's books. Gary Paulsen is a great author and his brain books are a prime example of this. Each book puts me right there in the wilderness and I feel like I'm surviving out there. They take me back to the days when I spent a lot of time out there and remind me of what it is like. Though they are fiction, they could be almost real.
   My 9 year old LOVED Hatchet so we bought him all the books by ...
He says they all seem to follow the same literary formula in different settings -- winter, an island, etc., but he loves the outdoors and adventure books, so he enjoys them despite their slight predictability.
