Brian's Hunt by Gary Paulsen

Brian's Hunt, another sequel to Hatchet, has Brian returning to the wilderness. We learn how Brian is an expert at survival and the hunt, He finds a dog, determines it belongs to his Cree friends, goes to visit them and finds their campground empty. Brian then embarks on a "hunt" to unravel the mystery.This book is bogged down with extensive detail about surviving in the wilderness. I felt that the author was putting forth his justification for hunting rather than writing a good story. I did not enjoy this book. 
Reed Reads Score: 2
