Summary:

“Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is en route to spending the summer with his father when the pilot of the single engine plane in which he is flying has a heart attack. The plane crashes in a lake in the Canadian wilderness, leaving Brian alone in the woods with nothing but the clothes on his back and a hatchet that his mother had given him. During the 54 days that Brian lives in the wilderness, he learns to read nature, conquer his fears, rely on his own ingenuity, and deal with the haunting secret that caused his parents’ recent divorce. He comes of age in the woods, but in ways he never expected. He is no longer angry at his parents, and he realizes that self-pity has no positive effect on life. He is a survivor, and that is what makes him a man.” ~ www.andrewluckbookclub.com/book/hatchet


When you’re talking survival you’re talking many different things. Can you read a map? Can you use a compass? Could you find food in the woods? How about bears…do you know how to keep one from attacking you? You live in Indiana, do you know how to keep yourself safe during tornadoes? These books will show you all the skills you need to survive all kinds of anxious situations. You can even learn how to protect yourself from piranhas…not a likely attack…but good to know!

SchooledCapricorn (Cap) Anderson has never, ever watched television.  He knows what a telephone is, but he doesn’t have one at home and has only talked on one a couple times.  He has never been in school.  Cap has spent his entire life on a farm commune with his grandma, and no one else.  When Cap’s grandma ends up in the hospital, he has no choice but to enroll in the local public middle school.

The only person happy to see Cap’s long hair, beads & sandals made out of corn husks is Hugh, the school oddball, who is more than happy to have Cap take his place as the official “wedgie receiver”.  Cap’s odd ways and disinterest in conforming catch the attention of the school bully, or “wedgie giver,” who chooses Cap as the year’s eighth grade president, an honor bestowed on the kid most likely to be made fun of all year.  Cap’s reaction to the bully’s pranks, and to the job of class president, takes everyone by surprise, especially the bully himself.  Long hair and beads never looked so good.
