Summary:

His name is synonymous with high-stakes wilderness survival stories. Now, beloved author Gary Paulsen portrays a series of life-altering moments from his turbulent childhood as his own original survival story. If not for his summer escape from a shockingly neglectful Chicago upbringing to a North Woods homestead at age five, there never would have been a Hatchet. Without the encouragement of the librarian who handed him his first book at age thirteen, he may never have become a reader. And without his desperate teenage enlistment in the military, he would not have discovered his true calling as a storyteller. A moving and enthralling story of grit and growing up, this book is perfect for newcomers and lifelong fans alike, from the acclaimed author at his rawest and most real.
