Since Brian returned, he was shy and quiet.
Brian didn't like the city much because it was really loud and there was a lot of people. Although my first Brian novel, I enjoyed it and want to read some of the earlier novels. Most of the book is in the wilderness. Going on this trip helped Brian a lot, and his mother noticed. When he finds a signal radio, he starts listening to the news. Setting: It first took place in an urban community in Minnesota.
After a librarian gave him a book to read--along with his own library card--he was hooked.

P2843 Bp 1999 Precededby Followedby Brian's Return is a 1999 Hatchet series. All of his therapy sessions with Caleb got him closer to this overall goal. The policemen recommended that he should go to counseling. I would have liked it if the book ended a little differently, but I liked the detail that was described in everything that Brian saw on his trip. He feels disconnected, more isolated than he did alone in the North.
I read it really fast because I wanted to know what Brian would do next. He was going to shoot it, but realized much of the meat would be wasted. He said that there was a camp up north that Brian could go to. When they meet, Brian is nearly beaten by the bear until the dog jumps into the fight. Brian listened to the old man, and then went to bed.
He felt like he was in a jail cell. It is about survival in both civilization and the wilderness. The old man said that that was his spirit animal, and that was what was going to guide him. When Brian decided to go back, I thought he was crazy, but then when he is there and makes the choice to never leave and live the rest of his life there, it blew my mind that after all that Brian went through, he would want to stay there. He must find a way to survive with only his wits and the resources he can find. The story is a very real look into the lives of just one family living an impoverished lifestyle. School has not been for him and he was bullied by a kid at his school and they got into a fight and now that he is bake in to woods and finally feels at peace.
Brian is an intensely autobiographical creation, and the spirit of personal independence and craving for nothing more than to just be a part of the wilderness—a craving that had its origin in the first book of his adventures, Hatchet—is clearly the heartfelt desire of Gary Paulsen played out on the page, in a situation that he has imagined I think that much of what makes Brian Robeson such a compelling figure is the way that his character reflects the life and philosophy of author Gary Paulsen. Brian had went into survival mode and protected the girl by beating the football player senseless. Plot: Brian's Return is an exciting book about a boy named Brian and his journey of coming back from the wilderness to civilization. I think Gaary Paulsen did a great job writing this book, and I really do like this book and i enjoyed reading it. Brian is back home, now, but though he has left the woods behind, the woods haven't returned the favor; he has been changed by the harrowing trials of his ordeal into a different person, and trying to get along in the "real world" as if nothing essential has changed proves to be an impossibility. Brians Return is a sequel to Hatchet by Gary Paulsen.
They could relate to this book, because the main character is a teenage male. My favorite part is when he comes across a man who lives out there and is very peaceful and relaxed and Brian feels like he knows him. I thought it was a very great and interesting book, because it involved wildlife and nature; two things I enjoy. I rate this book five out of five stars. He was a boy that was born to live in the wild.
Paulsen got Brian back to the wilderness. David sews up the dog's wound and she immediately attaches herself to him. Naturally I knew about The River, but not that fans had badgered Mr. Brian hasn't felt the same sense he came back from the woods everything is different part of him was left back in the woods and he is going to return back retrieve it. Peter Coyote was back as the narrator for the audiobook version; I was happy about that as he definitely has that story telling voice.
Which for me is the most interesting part. I started re-visiting classics that were popular when I was a child. It was about 20 years ago in school that my teacher read to us The Hatchet. After traveling only a short distance more, David stops and kills a deer, feeding the dog all she can eat in an effort to help her rebuild her strength. My favorite part is when he comes across a man who lives out there and is very peaceful and relaxed and Brian feels like he knows him.
