Brian is Traumatized in the Woods one Last Time

I have enjoyed every novel in the Brianverse, but this one felt a bit strange as an endpoint to the series, I must admit. I experienced greater closure from book 4, Brian's Return. This seemed to open things back up again.

Facing your giants

This was not my favorite of the Hatchet Adventures. The story line was a bit darker as were the challenges. Parents should read before giving over to their young teens to be able to talk about some of the darker situations presented.


My story is about ayoung man who takes a camping trip to the vast candain bush to vist some old Indian trapper friends . Along the way he picks up a wounded indian wolf dog ,that has seen better day. Senseing that somthing is wrong, Brian quickens his pace. When he arrives at the camp he finds it abondoned, noticing that his new sompanion is growling at somthing on the ground, cautiously Brian approaches and finds a track of a obivious rouge bear . Following the tracks into the dark forest, he soon finds himself staring into death itself eye`s. Brians hunt is a fine book and I give it 5 stars. I recomednd this book that is old enough to read!!!!.

Realistic for once about wildlife.

I enjoyed this book. It wasn't a happy book, the adventure wasn't as great as some I've read, but it was realistic about what happens in the wilderness and with wildlife. It is time slowly spent in the wilderness that makes the wilderness what it is. This book shows that. Brian takes his time hunting, making camp, even hiking. When he does have an encounter with wildlife, it isn't in a "Bambi" way, it is in a natural way. From hunting rabbits for food to hunting a bear, it is done in a realistic way. I especially like how he insists on using as much of an animal as possible, not wasting it. Read "Gentle Ben" for entertainment, but read this if you want to know what bears can really be like.

Hunting in Canada

1.Brain is on his way back to Canada to stay with his friends. But on his way he finds a dog, he thought it was a wolf or something else. But when he gets over there it is a dog. He finds that the dog is bad shape,and the dog is starving and it is hurt, a big cut wound is on his side. Brain sews the dog back, and then they head out to find who did it. 2. I think this was a good book. I liked it because i've already the brain books and i liked the series. It has action and aventure, and i like action and aventure. 3. This book has good plot, because it keep me guessing and keeps contiuneing the brain books. 4. Reason for rating would be, it teachs you some hunting skills, action/aventure, and ways to track animals

Brian's Camping Trip Returns

You will like this book because it is very adventurous. This is a good book because once you get started you can't put it down. I' m a lover of Gary Paulsen's Brian series. Every time a new book comes out I'm always the first person to get it in the library. To understand this book you might have to read the two books before this one to figure out about why he is where he is in this book. This book is about Brian and he is camping and he sees a dog. The dog is wounded and he is having trouble getting up. Brian goes over to see what is wrong and he sees that the dog is hurt. Now Brain is going to hunt for the person or thing that has hurt this dog. The dog also comes with him as his new partner to hunt. Some things that I like about this book is that it is very adventurous. It has a lot of things about what to doing the wilderness when you are camping and something goes wrong. Overall I think that you will love this book about Brian's Hunt.


This a good read. Though it is shorter than most of Paulsen's work, it is good. I didn't like the changes though. Like he brought more books than what The List in Brian's Return said, freeze dried food, the three pairs of moccasins, the monoculars, and the barbed fish tips for his arrows. Plus it didn't mention Caleb, after all he wouldn't be there without him. And it didn't mention his medicine or Billy. It was written in a different in a different way than the other Brian books. If you have read the other Brian books you will see a different writing style. It might be because Brian is finally in a hurry to get somewhere, but The River isn't written in this way. Overall I liked it and will continue reading Paulsen's work.I have been reading for more than seven years and liking his work. I have never and probably never find a Paulsen book I don't like.
