Brian's Hunt (Brian's Saga Series #5) by Gary Paulsen

Brian sets out on the hunt of a lifetime in this follow-up to the award-winning classic Hatchet from three-time Newbery Honor-winning author Gary Paulsen!
Brian Robeson has stood up to the challenge of surviving the wilderness in Hatchet, The River, Brian's Winter, and Brian's Return. Now, while camping alone on a lake in the woods, he finds a wounded and whimpering dog. As Brian treats her wounds, he worries about who or what did this to her. His instincts tell him to head north, quickly, to check on his Cree friends. With his new companion at his side, he sets out on the hunt.
Gary Paulsen expertly delivers a riveting story that brilliantly combines two of his great themes: the human animal's place in nature, and the mysterious and wonderful bond between humans and dogs.

“The Brian books reveal nature and humankind’s place in it with spare prose that seems ideally suited to the setting and plot.” —VOYA
“Based on real incidents, this well-written sequel to Hatchet and its successors will be gobbled up by the author’s legions of fans.” —Kirkus Reviews

This book is for the type of people that like the outdoors. His book has elements of mystery and suspense with kind of a twist ending. The series has great character development but there isn't much dialoge and you will find yourself rooting for Brian in this book like all the others.

Justin Bishop 7th hour 9/5/11 Brian's Hunt The story is about a boy who ends up going camping and ends up getting lost. And having to find his way back home in the middle of the woods. The boy named Brian will have to face his fears and will have to travel at a certain time because there is something following him something not humanlike it's so hard to explain. To find out more you will have to read this book. The main character was Brian. Brian had to find his way back home in the middle of the woods. Brian had ran in to many problems such as a Bear. Brian was my favorite character because he believed in him self that he was going to get out. This book is one of my favorite because every time I read further it get so exciting. I would prefer every one to read this book because its non stop excitement. My least favorite part in the book was when Brian was lost and as everything got worse he was attacked by a bear.

As Brian is trying to survive in the harsh winter of Canada; only having a hatchet, a 22 cal. Rifle with 50 rounds. The most interesting and exciting part in the story to me would be when he was hunting the moose or when he was attacked by the bear. There was also a very special dog in the story that got wounded but was strong enough to survive. This dog always returns to Brian after leaving. Evaluation: This story would be good for anyone liking adventure books. Conclusion: I was very interested in this book and it made me want to keep reading. It would be my favorite series, but my favorite book in this series would have to be hatchet. Final review: Very good book, couldn't quit reading it.

Brian is back in the woods again. Just as he learned to be in Brian Returns, Brian is a wanderer. One night he finds an injured dog along shore. The dog was seriously injured, but very sweet and calm. The dog obviously belonged to someone; she is not wild. Who does she belong to? Brian decides to head 30 miles north to his Cree friends camp and see if they know who the dog belonges to. He knew when he walked up to the camp that something was wrong, very wrong.

If you like to hunt this is the book for you. Brian has to survive in the wilderness and hunt for food. He finds a wild dog for his friend. It decribes really good. You should read it.

At the beginning you find out that Brian is stranded in the middle of nowhere when his plane crashed. Everyone died in the plane except for Brian. Brian learns how to survive and adapt to his environment. He sees a wolf in the distance and when the wolf comes closer it is torn to pieces. Brian realizes that the wolf is actually dog then has torn apart by a bear. He uses fishing line to thread the dog’s skin. Then he goes down the river with his dog in the canoe they made. He starts flowing down the river that he has been wanting to do for a while. He finds an abandoned cabin in the open and he checks if anyone is in the cabin. He checks the cabin and there is no one here. He thinks a bear might have done this. Then he finds people and they ask him if he wants to fly home. He says no because he wants to kill the bear who got into the cabin. I liked the book because it is suspenseful and the story is about surviving in the wilderness alone. It was a good book overall. I recommend the book to people if you like books about survival.

Brian has returned to the wilderness, again. Since his plane crashed in the wilderness of Canada two years ago (HATCHET), he just cannot become neither comfortable nor content with the shallow, empty, noisy life of society. This time, as he canoes along the lakes, he makes a new friend, a wounded dog. As he nurses the dog to health, he as an instinctual fear for his Cree friends in the north. He has learned to depend upon his instincts, so he decides to check on them. He leaves for the north in the canoe with his new friend. Little does he know, he is in for the hunt of his lifetime. As always, Gary Paulsen tells a simple yet profound tale with his most popular and most loved character, Brian. Short and simple, this story, like his others, has tremendous impact and expresses truths about life in general. I highly recommend this little book!
