Hatchet Next Step

on December 20, 2018

In “Hatchet,” so far Brian has survived a plane crash.  The pilot had a heart attack and died on the spot.  Brian took control over the plane even though he doesn’t know how to fly one.  He landed near a lake.  Although surviving, he did suffer painful bruises and mosquito bites all over his body.  I don’t know what Brian is going to do next, but this is what I would do:

If I was in the same situation, I would try to build a shelter for myself.  I would use the hatchet and cut down a few small trees or branches to use for wood.  If the hatchet had sunk in the lake, I would try to dive for it, but probably be unsuccessful.  For food I would (try) to kill some fish, because I know they’re plentiful in the lake.  Also, I would create a fire to keep away insects and to keep warm.

    Hi, Summmer!
    I really liked how you included what might work and not work. I wonder how you would start the fire? I wish you said why he was on the plane?
