Plot Summary

On his way to visit his recently divorced father to spend the summer within the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.

Out of sheer luck, clear thinking and disbelief, Brian is able to land the plane on his own and escapes. He then realizes that he needs food and shelter for him to survive until rescue arrives. He must learn to survive on his own with nothing but his hatchet – a gift his mother gave him shortly before his plane departed.

A recommended audiobook for young kids

More than a survival story, Hatchet is a tale of tough decisions. When all is stripped down to the barest essentials, Brian discovers some stark and simple truths. Self-pity doesn’t work. Despair doesn’t work. And if Brian is to survive physically as well as mentally, he must discover courage.

That what made this story reviewed as a recommended audiobook for young kids. Your boys would love it! This is a  great book to listen to as a family!

“My husband remembered enjoying this book from his childhood and wanted to share with our own children (8-year-old and 6-year-old twins). He read the book to them over the course of a couple of weeks and they loved it. Our kids wouldn’t let him get out of reading at least one chapter every night. We just purchased Brians Winter to start tonight and plan on reading them the entire series.”Breathtaking….mesmerizing.” 

“My 10-year-old son and I listened to “Hatchet audiobook Mp3”, while driving from WA State to eastern B.C., Canada. Read splendidly by Peter Coyote, it is a captivating story of a boy’s survival in the northern Canadian woods. My son was mesmerized. He and I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and it helped the time pass quickly on our long drive north…I highly recommend this book for any youngster who’s curious about learning survival skills, and imagines what it would be like to have to survive on their own. “
