Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

A favorite story of survival and adventure of young adults Hatchet is the type of book that often gets the reluctant reader to become a voracious reader. 

Brian is flying out to see his father in the oil fields when the pilot in the small plane has a heart attack and dies. Brian is lucky enough to make a crash landing in a lake but has gone so far off course that searchers do not find him and the plane has sunk into the lake.

What follows is a summer of hardship, self-knowledge and survival. Brian comes to learn much about himself as he learns how to survive with only a hatchet.
