it was amazing
Read in January, 2006

Interest level: 5th +
Reading level: medium
Genre: autobiography, adventure, survival, nature, hunting

After reading "Hatchet" I had to read the autobiography of author Gary Paulsen because I wanted to find out how he got his ideas for his books. "Guts" is written in the same style as "Hatchet" - it's hard to put down and very suspenseful. I was surprised to discover that much of what Gary Paulsen writes is actually based on many of his real-life experiences. Even if you haven't read "Hatchet" and Paulsen's other books you'll enjoy this book on its own. But after you've read it you probably won't be able to resist picking up one of his many adventure/survival books!
