<b>Celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Newbery Honor–winning survival novel <i>Hatchet </i>with a pocket-sized edition perfect for travelers to take along on their own adventures. This special anniversary edition includes a new introduction and commentary by author Gary Paulsen, pen-and-ink illustrations by Drew Willis, and a water resistant cover. <i>Hatchet </i>has also been nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s <i>The Great American Read.</i></b><br /><br />Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson, haunted by his secret knowledge of his mother’s infidelity, is traveling by single-engine plane to visit his father for the first time since the divorce. When the plane crashes, killing the pilot, the sole survivor is Brian. He is alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother had given him as a present.<br /> <br />At first consumed by despair and self-pity, Brian slowly learns survival skills—how to make a shelter for himself, how to hunt and fish and forage for food, how to make a fire—and even finds the courage to start over from scratch when a tornado ravages his campsite. When Brian is finally rescued after fifty-four days in the wild, he emerges from his ordeal with new patience and maturity, and a greater understanding of himself and his parents.

In search for the townspeople of Gatecross and his Core Power Guild, Fred and his friends wind up in the city of Allroads – where they find more than they bargained for. After successfully breaking them all out of prison using his special abilities and creating a small dungeon underneath the city, his activity unfortunately gained the attention of the elemental Dungeon Core factions surrounding the large valley where the city was located.<br /><br />That’s because the city of Allroads was occupying the middle of what the Cores called a Convergence, an area of intense elemental concentration that produced an extraordinary amount of ambient Mana; those Convergences are protected and off-limits for any dungeons to possess, which was one of the reasons Fred gained the ire of the nearby Cores.<br /><br />Or, it could be because he destroyed three of their own…<br /><br />Regardless of the reason, Allroads is under siege, and Fred has to help defend the city from all seven of the elemental factions pressing against his territory border, prepare for potential invaders to his dungeon with the help of his Shards, and potentially figure out a way to save both species (Humans and Dungeon Cores) from extinction. <br /><br />And he has to do all of that while convincing the Allroads Council not to execute him for bringing all of this trouble to their literal doorstep…<br /><br />Contains LitRPG/GameLit elements such as statistics and leveling. No harems and no profanity.<br />
