Brian's Return is about a boy named Brian that in the past was stuck in the wilderness for a long time alone (if you didn't know that read Hatchet.) He diecides to go back after seeing an ex-cop, Caleb for counseling after an fight with a football jock. Before departing, he finds out the pilot can only take him so far and he'll have to canoe the rest of the way. Without telling his mom about this detail he starts preparing.
I think it's a great book for learning how to survive in the wilderness, but it's a good book for someone without a care in the world also. I didn't like the fact that there wasn't many characters in the book. The beginning is kinda boring until you get into the second chapter, but hang on to it. After that it gets better and better until the end. I wish it wouldn't have let off as if Gary Paulsen had to make a deadline. I wish he would make a followup to tell us what's next. But don't take my word for it, read it.

The fight scene is informative as to how the atitude of having to kill for survival can bleed over into inapropriate areas. The List of equipment Brian takes back into the wild is usefull. How he describes both the beauty of the woods as well as his restlessness in the city is good. His differentness in what he cares about is also informative.
However, the book is essentialy a mysical journey. While Brian is Thankfull, I wonder to whom he is thankfull. What spirits guide him?

Brian's Return
Brian's Return is a disappointment! Gary Paulsen is a excellent author, but he could of done a better job for this book. This wasn't his best writhing. The beginning of this book was very boring, because he is in his home town telling how boring it is to be in town. Brian finally figures out that he likes the woods better and it makes him free. He wants to get permission to go back to the woods and live there. When he finally gets the permission the permission to go back, he has to find a why out there. An airline will drive when to 1 island and Brian's has to row his way to three other islands. He rows to one island a day and has to find his own food.
The sequels to Brian's Return are Hatchet, The River, and Brian's Winter. Gary Paulson is the author of the best selling novel of the year "Brian Winter". This book is very adventurous at times. I thought it would like Hatchet ,but it wasn't even close. I think that's way I didn't like it.

Gary has pulled off yet another one! Brians return is an overall great read for a rainey day. It is when brian gets saved befor the winter and is shipped back to his home town in the good old USA. Brian has adjusted to the wilderness and is not yet ready to go back to civilazation. Things happen and brian is forced to go into tharepey with a blind x-cop. The x-cop shows him the light and now brian is preparing to go back into the wilderness, but this time he's prepared. Another great book from Gary Paulson and a great book for all ages.

He tells him about the experience he has with the forest. Brian tells his mom he is going back to the forest. She ask him to stay but he said he is going. Brian and his mom both start to pack all of his stuff he will need. He gets a ride from the pilot to the forest. Every now and then he writes letters to Caleb the counsler.

What I liked about this book is it deals with problems that we have right now. It relates to me because I do most of that stuff.
