The book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen, is about a 13-year old boy named Brian who was on a plane to visit his mother, but during the ride the pilot of the plane had a heart attack, and crashed in the Canadian wilderness.
Hatchet is one of my favorite books. The plot is very good and captures the reader's attention immediately. I would recommend this book to everyone. Hatchet made me think of what would happen if I was in Brian's shoes and was trapped in the wilderness with no help.
