      • Gary Paulsen

        Although he was never a dedicated student, Paulsen developed a passion for reading at an early age After a librarian gave him a book to read along with his own library card he was hooked He began spending hours alone in the basement of his apartment building, reading one book after another Running away from home at the age of 14 and traveling with a carnival, Paulsen acquired a taste for adventure A youthful summer of rigorous chores on a farm jobs as an engineer, construction worker, ranch hand, truck driver, and sailor and two rounds of the 1,180 mile Alaskan dog sled race, the Iditarod have provided ample material from which he creates his stories.Paulsen and his wife, Ruth Wright Paulsen, an artist who has illustrated several of his books, divide their time between a home in New Mexico and a boat in the Pacific.


    1. First off, note the title of this book. I didn’t realize until I was about 60 pages in or so why the book is called Brian’s Hunt.For myself, I’m an adult now. I read The Hatchet probably about 20 years ago, most likely when it was still a relatively new book. I was a real bookworm, but due to not having such things like internet and google, my only way of finding out if an author had new books was to go to my local bookstore or library and check.Therefore it wasn’t until a few years ago [...]

    2. If you liked the earlier books, read this. It’s pleasant but I wanted it longer with more stuffORY BRIEF:This is book 5 in the series. Brian was 13 in the first book “Hatchet” when he survived a plane crash and the Canadian wilderness - alone for 54 days. In book 4, Brian is 15 and returns to the wilderness - with supplies to live there for a while. This book is later in that same trip or the next year. He is now 16. He catches fish and shoots game with a bow and arrow. He discovers an inj [...]

    3. Concluding the events that began with a plane crash and fight for survival, Gary Paulsen went out with a crazy blow.Brian was a young kid when he was forced to survive alone in the wildness of Canada four books back, but now in this last installment of his life, he is a much older youth. He even has his eye on a girl. We met her and her family at the ending of the third book, when we see what would have happened if Brian had been left to survive in the winter. He meets an Inuit family and they t [...]

    4. Brian Robertson was once stuck in the wilderness for 45 days. He was rescued by a outdoors man and his family. Brian thought it would be nice to pay him and his family a visit. After heading down stream Brian found an injured dog come from the direction that he was heading. The dog was injured and had a huge gash on its left side. Using some fishing wire he stitched up the dog. Brian couldn’t let the dog go, he could tell that it was a house dog. Brian decided to take it along with him. Once h [...]

    5. The reason why i chose this book is because i have read the other two books befor it. It book is realleistif ficshon. The teting of the book is out in the north woods of Canada. The mane character lived in the city for most of his life but he was in two different plane crashes and now he calles the north woods his home. The plot of the book is that Brian wants to go see his friends that he spent his three months of his winter with and they are natovamaricans. The conflict of the book is that a d [...]

    6. The river and wilderness belong to Brian and his new companion, until he discovers a terrifying scene at a campground nearby his hunting grounds. His closest friend may be in danger, and he is willing to risk his own life in order to protect her.I have never read a "Brian book" before, although I had read excerpts from Gary Paulsen's various works many times. I liked that Paulsen's style mirrored the situation in the woods--bare-boned and raw.I recommend this to anyone, especially those kids in [...]

    7. This book by Gary Paulsen entitled “Brian’s Hunt”, is the fifth and final book in his series. This is a book that I feel will catch the reader’s attention. It is about Brian, the main character, and his continued journey spending his time in the wild fishing and hunting. Brian previously survived on an island for 56 days where he learned how to survive by living off the land. After this life changing experience, Brian no longer feels that he can live in the current society.Brian starts t [...]

    8. In the book Brian's Hunt, the main character is a sixteen year old boy named Brian. The book is set in the Canadian wilderness during current times. The main conflict is that a dog shows up from somewhere with a slash down it's side and some other wounds. He then decides to go north and take the dog with him, and ask his Cree friends if they know if anyone has lost a dog. But, when he gets to their camp, he finds the mother and father dead, mauled by a bear, and one of their daughters, Susan, wh [...]

    9. I liked this book. It was OK but it wasn't the greatest mainly because for homework I had to fill out a story map about it. I started it a while ago, when I was first assigned to read a independant reading book around my lexile. And this was it. I picked it because it was my lexile reading range and it was only 100 pages so I thought I could fly through it. I started it, then never got around to reading it, even though I was telling myself to read it. I just wanted to read Stephen King. But I fi [...]

    10. This book is about a boy who is about 15 years old and has had tons of crazy experience with the wilderness. He ends up liking it a lot and decides to go camping by himself. In the night he is sleeping and wakes up to a dog whining and crying because it has a huge cut in it so he fix's it up. He has to get food for it and later finds out that it was cut by a bear and belongs to a family but most of it died from the bear. It got into the cabin and killed them but all the kids survived. He goes to [...]

    11. The novel I read was Brian's Hunt by Gary Paulsen which is the fifth book of Brian's Saga. Since Brian has decided he belongs in the wilderness, has made friends with the Cree family. Brian is still in the Canadian wilderness as in all the past books. In this story of Brian's life he will make a new friend, have losses, and meet a new enemy. Brian hunts for revenge even though it won't fix what happens, but he'll still go for it. Thais book is overall really good about whats happening with him u [...]

    12. Terrific read, novella length. (I'd be more of a feral creature like Brian, but for the mosquitoes and biting flies that are acknowledged in these books but not sufficiently described as the peace-wrecking monsters they are.)Some wonderfully affecting passages about dogs.

    13. Brian's hunt wasn't the best book. It is the last book of the hatchet series but there isn't much to it. It takes place in the wilderness again, following Brian's Return the book before. Brian had finally come back to the woods and he is re learning everything that he had forgotten but he does well. He learns how to fight a bear, that is the only new thing that happens in this book.

    14. I read Brians Hunt because I've read parts of it before but not the whole thing. Iv'e wanted to read this book before but I never had the time to. I now relize that this book is really good and really liked it. Gary Paulsen is a really good author. I've read books by him before, but this is my favorite book by far because it involves fishing, hunting, tracking, and killing a bear. Overall the book was good and I think that it was an easy read.

    15. If I could give it 2.5 stars, I would. Oddly enough - my main critique is its length - too short. The beginning was lovely: descriptions of Brian settling into his life in the woods, finding the dog, journeying together. However, once the "action" starts it moves pretty quickly. Also some cliched use of the "it's personal" trope. Also - Brian comes off a bit of a braggart - assuming that everyone - park rangers to native peoples - doesn't know as much about life "in the bush" as he does. For exa [...]

    16. Brians HuntBrian is a sixteen year old boy that likes to live out in the woods. Now in the spring he has to come home and do his studies because he is still in school. Although he is homeschooled, he still has to get his education. When fall and summer come, he is out in the woods.He is going on his hunting trip, up in Minnesota. He is all by himself, and all he has is a recurve bow, wooden arrows, some rope , a tin pot, knife,and a canoe. He starts his journey in his canoe and he is going to sa [...]

    17. Brians Hunt is one of those books that I never want to let go of and really catches my attention. I love the wilderness and survival so this book is right up my alley. This book had me on the edge of my seat since the first page. If you like survival books and Gary Paulsen I recommend you read Brian's Hunt. I give this book a five star.

    18. I believe that the Gary Paulsen's main idea of Brian's Hunt was to show how a boy can overcome being in a plane crash and getting stranded on an island, and then two years later go back into the wilderness by himself. The book takes place in the wilderness, with Brian alone in the wilderness. This book is told in third person limited. Brian Roberson is the main character and he is in the wilderness for the first time by himself, just two years after he was in a plane crash. He is a little bit ti [...]

    19. Brian’s Hunt The book that I read was Brian’s Hunt. The author is Gary Paulsen and the genre is adventure. I picked this book out because I had read the book Hatchet, which is also by Gary Paulsen. There are many books to this series. Brian is a kid who knows a lot about the Canadian woods. He was there first when his plane crashed and he had to survive there. Brian has gone back many times to the Canadian woods. He likes it more in the woods then in the city. This time, he goes back to hunt [...]

    20. “Brian’s Hunt” by Gary Paulsen, is the fifth book in the series. It is about a teenager named Brian who loves the outdoors. He is on a 56 day journey on an island in which he learns to live off the land. While alone on the island he is rescued by a family who lives there. One night he heard a dog whimpering and went to see what was wrong. The dog turned out to be hurt. It had a big cut in the side, in which he fixes up with fishing line. He then realizes it is a house dog and heads out to [...]

    21. Gary Paulsen’s Brian’s Hunt is the fifth and final Brian book. This book is about Brian Robeson, who left civilization, and is just living in the wilderness. Brian is sleeping in his canoe one night, and he heard something walking towards him. He came to realize it is a female dog. The dog has a big flap of skin torn off her back, and Brian asks himself, “Where did she come from?” “How did this happen?” Brian searches for his Cree friends that he has met before. His instincts tell hi [...]

    22. Personal Response: I read this book called Brian’s Hunt and I thought that it was a good book. I think it is cool to read these types of books. I can relate to this book because I love the outdoors and enjoy adventures. Plot: Brian’s Hunt by Gary Paulsen, and it was a good book in my mind.It is about a teenager named Brian who loves the outdoors.

    23. Brian's Hunt is a great continuation to Brian's life story. It shows how he becomes very uneasy in a civilized environment, and how he longs to be back in the wilderness. That is why he makes up his mind to return to his camp out in the wilderness. Shortly after his arrival, he finds a severely injured dog, which he then takes care of. Brian becomes worried about his friends a Cree family that lives not far from his camp. Brian works his way to his friends house and finds a gruesome sight. The h [...]

    24. Book 12Jake Olson This book is a continue to the end of the last book Brian's return. After find what he was missing he want to still go and visit his friends the longhorns. He said that he wanted to hurry, but he didn't know why he has been living of the wilderness. He was about thirty miles or so from the longhorns camp when in the middle of the night he found a dog with a big gash in her side. He sews it up and wondered what made the gash and then thought that aren't these the dogs the use at [...]

    25. The book takes place in a forest in Canada. Brian stays near a lake and moves around the open land and meets a village. He has found friends and is hoping to return to meet a girl he is in loved with. During his survival adventure he was fishing and went to bed. He goes to bed in a canoe on the lake so land animals wont bother him. Although while he was trying to sleep he heard some weird noises. He couldn't figure out what the noise was so he went to shore to get a closer look. He saw a dog lik [...]

    26. If this book was combined with Brian's Return, I would’ve enjoyed the latter better. Brian’s Hunt continues off from where we left Brian, who was on his way to the Cree trapping family he met in Brian's Winter. He meets an injured dog along the way, and witnesses a cruel and disturbing scene that leads Brian to The Hunt. In this last (for now) book in the Brian’s Saga series, Paulsen shows us a harshness of nature that is not present in the previous books. The one thing I didn’t like abo [...]

    27. Jerrit Schramm9/30/088-1 L.A.I really liked this book because it talked about a young boy who left the bustling city life to live amongst the animals and nature. My by far favorite part of the book is when he finds a wounded animal (cant say what animal because it will ruin the rest of the book for the people who haven’t read it). I think the book was made to influence opinion on saving the wilderness that is still left out there. It also talks about how there are still native Americans who li [...]

    28. Brian's Hunt is a good book. This time Brian is back in the wilderness, because there is something missing from his life. When he gets to the forest he finds a dog. He thinks the dog belongs to the Cree trapping family. The dog is hurt so Brian tries to take care of it. Brian doesn't know what did it so he thinks it was a bear,but doesn't know for shore so it could be anything. So Brian goes to the Crees house and every thing is torn up and Susans parents are dead. he wondered where she is but i [...]
