In the book Hatchet, the main character, Brain, has been forced to survive in the wild after having his plane crash. He is all by himself and has VERY limited supplies.
"In June 2011 Hatch was a passenger in a small plane, piloted by his father, that crashed. His father and stepmother were killed. " (Moore)
"'A lot of people have said my recovery is kind of a miracle,' Hatch said. 'But you have to remember the significance of what I've been through. I had a traumatic brain injury.'" (Moore)
2,000 people get lost in the woods each year. In the book, Hatchet the main character Brain gets lost after a plane crash in the woods. Brian has to survive like many other people have had to also. In my article, two sisters get lost and they have to survive too. In my article, the sisters get found by a park ranger. (Preuss) If there were more park rangers, Brain could have been found instead of being stranded for 2 months.
"The helicopter circled several times before finding the vehicle under trees. The sisters -- one of whom is from Nebraska and the other from Oklahoma -- then got out of the car and started waving and building a signal fire." (Preuss)
In the book Hatchet, Brian is in a plane crash because the pilot had a heart attack mid-flight. Brian then had to try and land the plane in a good spot and try to save himself.
After the plane crashes, Brain has to survive on his own. He had to find water, hunt for food, and build a shelter. After many fails, he learned and succeeded. After accidentally setting off an emergency transmitter Brain was saved after two months be stranded.
"'He taught me everything -- the work necessary to succeed, faith, determination and courage in the midst of hardship. Those traits I acquired from him are what saved my life.'" (Moore)
