Gary Paulsen, author of Hatchet, dies at 82. I read Hatchet on my own in 7th grade back in...well, never mind how long ago that was. Okay, it was 1988 and the book had been released just two years earlier. It's about a boy who crashes in the woods in a small airplane and is forced to survive on his own. A hatchet may or may not have been crucial to his survival. There was a movie adaptation in 1990 I never heard of and I just learned there are four other books in what became a series.

I was already 20 when Hatchet came out, so it was too "young" for me, and as such never read it. But my sons both read it, and I think both enjoyed it. RIP Gary Paulsen

A truly sad end to a man who could well have been the first Black Republican President, had his reputation not been used and squandered by others.
