    Hatchet’ Speech. ‘Hatchet’ by Gary Paulsen is a great book about survival in the wild. It follows the time of a boy, Brian Robson, who crash lands in the middle of a Canadian forest.

The adversity he faces and his undying drive are what fascinated me most. Since that time my reading habits have
