Brian's Winter

Brian's Winter by Gary Paulsen

Brian's Winter is a young adult novel which contains an alternate ending to Gary Paulsen's Hatchet - instead of being rescued, Brian must endure a winter alone in the wilderness. Brian must deal with decreasing temperatures and food supply, conditions which push his limited survival skills to the limit. As he struggles to survive, Brian learns not only about the dangers of a Canadian winter, but also his own unexpected strength.
