  • He would have to find some way to protect himself, some weapon The fire worked well when it was burning, but it had burned down His hatchet and knife would have done nothing than make the bear really angry something he did not like to think about and his bow was good only for smaller game He had never tried to shoot anything bigger than a fool bird or rabbitHe would have to find some way to protect himself, some weapon The fire worked well when it was burning, but it had burned down His hatchet and knife would have done nothing than make the bear really angry something he did not like to think about and his bow was good only for smaller game He had never tried to shoot anything bigger than a fool bird or rabbit with it and doubted that the bow would push the arrow deep enough to do anything but again make the bear really mad He bundled in his bag that night, the end of the two weeks of warm weather He kept putting wood on the fire, half afraid the bear would come back All the while he tried to think of a solution But in reality, the bear was not his primary adversary Nor was the wolf, nor any animal Brian had become his own worst enemy because in all the business of hunting, fishing and surviving he had forgotten the primary rule Always, always pay attention to what was happening Everything in nature means something and he had missed the warnings that summer was ending, had in many ways already ended, and what was coming would be the most dangerous thing he had faced since the plane crashed.

    One thought on “Brian's Winter”

    1. more survivals for me! this book wasn't as fun as the first one - the book seemed less immediate than hatchet. maybe because of the way it was presented; as a "what if", rather than a regular story, the stakes seem lower, even though it is exactly the same. it's more like a writer's exercise than a proper story. or maybe i am reading too many woodsy type books too closely together. i will pause now and get on with my summer of classix. teeny books, get thee behind me!

    2. 3.5 starsI enjoyed this book more than the first. As I read, I realized that most of what bugged me in Hatchet was Brian himself. His emotional outbursts and the way he thought about his parents made him seem a few years younger than thirteen, and it bothered me the whole time. But this book is all about survival. A problem arises, and Brian solves it. As long as you can get past the fact that this is a “what if” book (but really, all fiction is a big “what if” anyway), this is a great s [...]

    3. Until last month, I didn’t even realize that Hatchet had a sequel. Turns out, it has four. How did I not know this?! I skipped over The River, the first sequel, for the time being, as it seemed like a repeat of the first but with an audience. Although I have to confess, I’ll probably be reading it sooner rather than later. But I was intrigued by the synopsis of Brian’s Winter. What if Brian hadn’t been rescued, and had to ride out the winter in the Canadian wilderness? Would he survive?S [...]

    4. Again, I review that I love these books, not only am I a Gary Paulsen Fan, but I also like survival books; and if you like survival this book is not for you. The book takes you back to the spot where we left Brian, the Canadian Wilderness. This time instead of setting the radio transmitter of Gary Paulsen writes about a diffrent ending to the book Hatchet. Brian finds the survival kit and continues to hunt for small game and "fowl bird" as he calls it. Brian knows that the seasons are coming and [...]

    5. This book is totally not good. Like it's bad. Real bad. If you like romantic comedies, then don't read it. It's about a man and then the man totally dies. If there was a way to give it a zero then I would. Nasty. What an ugly book. What a sorry excuse for a use of my time. Waste. Heartbreak. That's all this book will bring you.

    6. Being Alone in the middle of nowhere isn’t very fun, but being cold and alone takes it to a whole other level; just ask Brian Robeson.“Brian’s Winter” is a continuation of Gary Paulsen’s book “Hatchet”. Actually it is a reimagining of what would have happened to Brian Robeson if he wasn’t rescued and had to get through the cold Northern Canada winter alone. Brian almost misses the signs that winter is coming, but when he finally gets it he realizes that he has a lot of work to do [...]

    7. "Brian's Winter" by Gary Paulsen picks up where the character Brian left off, had he not been rescued. In his foreward, Paulsen said that he received "as many as 200 letters a day" from readers saying that they felt that Brian's story was not finished, that he was rescued before things got really tough. In order to read this novel, you have to read it with the pretense that when he retrieved the survival pack from the plane, he did not turn on the radio signal. With winter on the horizon, Brian' [...]

    8. I read "Brian's Winter" by Gary Paulsen, I thought the book was good in some ways. It started out in the early stages of fall and worked its way into the winter including all the changes that had to be made just to survive. He had to kill more for food and clothing. Brian spends a great majority of his time in his shelter to stay warm and not freeze to death in the harsh winter. The main character of this book is Brian. He is a very brave, tough, and intelligent boy who is trying to survive in t [...]

    9. Name: April FellGenre: AdventureAPA: Paulsen, Gary.(1996). Brian's Winter. New York: Random House Children's Books. Highly Recommended/read 1st two books Hatchet and The River/this is the final book in the seriesBrain's Winter is the 3rd book in the Hatchet series.

    10. Personal Response: "Brian's Winter" was a great book from the series of "Hatchet". Also this book was based on a series of events that happened in this timeline.Plot: Brian is lost in the woods and is surviving out in the wilderness alone as a survivor of a plane crash. As winter approaches, Brian is hurrying to make up for lost time. About a month into winter there are gunshots across the lake and another plane overhead. Brian believes himself to be hallucinating these things and dismisses them [...]

    11. I love Gary Paulsen, and every signal book he makes. They're just so awesome and well awesome. Brian's Winter pretty much follows after the first book "Hatchet", and shares the story if Brian never got out of the Canadian forest before winter. So now his whole conflict is Winter. I though it was really cool how Gary would give us readers this story even when it wasn't even meant to happen with the ending of Hatchet. The book just really goes into detail how Brian prepares for the closer coming w [...]

    12. I´ve learned about this book a lot. Now, when i hear someone has been stranded out in the wilderness, I always think about Brian. This book teaches you have to do a lot of things and speccially never give up and less when your life is on the line. I also liked that the book was very interesting, for example when Brian was attacked by a moose or how he learned to make snowshoes. I really like adventure stories and even more survival stories, and this book covers all of it. I think it was very in [...]

    14. Personal Response:I read Brian's Winter by Gary Paulsen. I thought this was a very good book, because I have read the previous books and they kept on getting better and better. He knew where the animals were and how to hunt them. He set up his camp under a rock by a small lake in Canada, where he only killed what he needed, and used the whole animal for tools and food.Plot:Brian's Hunt was about Brian Robeson who was a thirteen year old boy and survived in a wilderness with a winter that came fa [...]

    18. Austin HammondEnglish 12/5September 25th, 2014Brian’s WinterI just finished reading “Brian’s Winter” by Gary Paulsen. I thought this was a very good book. It was one of those books that you didn't really want to put down. It was very eventful and always had something new in store. There was a lot of exciting events that happen in this book, anything from him getting attacked by a bear, to him spearing a moose. The biggest adventure for him I feel was him having to learn to live off the l [...]

    19. This is an amazing book based off of what would have happened to Brian if he were not rescued before the winter struck him in the northern Canadian wilderness. It shows many scenarios that went very badly for Brian, such as the bear attack, that destroyed his shelter, and then the fact that he was so worried about the bear coming back that he didn't begin to think about preparing for the winter he was about to face. For example, he never began to ready more firewood to help him through the winte [...]

    20. I thought this was a good book because he went in the wilderness and is living off the land and verry little things that people made, he is living by himself. He knows the enviornment and when he hunts he knows where the animals are and how to hunt them. He set up his camp under a rock by a small lake in canada. When he hunts he only kills what he needs and uses the whole thing for tools and food. In the book it is winter going into spring, he is going down river in a canoo to visit some friends [...]

    21. Brian's Winter is a fantastic novel. Written by Gary Paulsen, this novel explores the story of Brian Robeson, a young teen who survives a horrific plane crash over the Canadian wilderness. Unfortunately, Brian is then forced to survive in these minimal and isolated conditions for an extensive period of time. This books provides readers with an alternative story to the conclusion of the novel Hatchet, Gary Paulson's first novel in the Hatchet series. In this alternative story, Brian must survive [...]

    22. My personal response- I think this was a very we'll written book. The way Gary Paulson had only one main character and how he managed to still make a great story just around him was amazing. The Plot- This is about Brian Robeson who is thirteen years old and is trying to survive in a wilderness with winter coming fast. He is not prepared for it at all. He has no clothes or food or anything. He has to learn to do a lot of things a normal thirteen-year-old boy would never have to do. He learns thr [...]

    24. Read by Malinda, Summer 2006:"The book that I read this week was Brian’s Winter by Gary Paulsen. I picked this book to read because I had read the book that came before it in the series with a student that I was tutoring. This book is about a 13 year old boy who is in a plain crash. The small plain that he is flying in goes down in a small lake and the pilot is killed. The plain crash does not happen in this book but you are given enough information to know that it happened. Brian has to survi [...]

    25. The title of my book is “Brian’s Winter”, and it is the sequel to Gary Paulsen’s last book, Hatchet. This book is about how Brian must have survived if he had n teen rescued; and like Gary Paulsen states in the summary: “What if Brian had been left to confront his deadliest enemy-winter?” Although I disliked the book, I must admit that the author (Gary Paulsen) does a great job of emphasizing the fat tat you must never give up in this cracking read that shows how Brian is set to surv [...]

    26. Brian has been stuck in the woods for a whole summer due to his plane crashing on the way to his fathers house. While Brian has been there he has learned how to hunt, build fire, and survive on his own. This book tells the story of what could have happened to Brian during the winter if he wouldn't have been rescued when the summer ended. One thing I really liked about the book is that it was very realistic. It teaches you a lot about what really happens in the woods in a realistic way. Also, I r [...]

    27. Brian's Winter was a great book! It is a direct continuation of the famous book 'Hatchet' by Gary Paulson. In this book, Brian is still stuck in the Wilderness after his tragic plane crash back during the summer. He has been surviving, hunting rabbits and foolbirds and catching small fish in the nearby lake. He notices the temperature beginning to change. He realizes that winter is slowly approaching, and that he is not nearly prepared enough for it. He needs to change his entire point of view o [...]

    28. At the end of Hatchet, Im thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson, who has been trapped in the Canadian wilderness after a plane accident, decides to dive for supplies from the submerged aircraft. I almost drown. I recover, among other things, an emergency transmitter. Within hours, a pilot receives the beacon and rescues me. The book ends with a note that I, learn wilderness survival through trial and error, probably would not have survived the upcoming harsh winter. I read Brian's Winter by Gary Pauls [...]

    29. Brians Winter is an ok book. I like how much smarter he is in this book, but it was also fun to read about how much he learned about survival. He doesn't really do very much in this book other than hunt and get rescued. I don't like it taking place in winter because he can't hunt anymore because all of the animals would be hibernating for the winter. I think this book could have been better.Brian Robeson's story doesn't pull me in as much in this book. After surviving in the woods for months on [...]
