FIRST EDITION OF HATCHET, INSCRIBED BY GARY PAULSEN

PAULSEN, Gary. Hatchet. New York: Bradbury Press, (1987). Octavo, original half gray cloth, original dust jacket.

First edition of this Newberry Honor Book, inscribed on the title page: "For J——: Best wishes, Gary Paulsen."

"When the pilot of a small, two-person plane has a heart attack and dies, Brian has to crash land in the forest of a Canadian wilderness. He has little time to realize how alone he is, because he is so busy just trying to survive… This is a heart-stopping story: it seems that at every moment Brian is forced to face a life-and-death decision, and every page makes readers wonder at the density of descriptive detail Paulsen has expertly woven together. Poetic texture and realistic events are combined to create something beyond adventure, a book that plunges readers into the cleft of the protagonist's experience" (Publishers Weekly).
