I was enchanted by this book about the man behind all of those famous survival stories! I loved how Paulsen described a portion of his life through turning-points that he experienced while spending time with the natural world. Certain of his experiences made me cringe a bit, and I marveled at his courage and stamina in situations I certainly wouldn't have known how to handle--no wonder "Hatchet" and "The Transall Saga" feel so realistic!
