Gary Paulsen, 1939-2021: R.I.P.

NPR Obituary.

Paulsen wrote a fine series of outdoor survival books, beginning with Hatchet. My nephew brought that book home from school, and I read it, and found it a great book in the old-fashioned manner of Ernest Thompson Seton. I read a bunch of the sequels to Hatchet, although possibly not all of them. They impart essential survival skills in an easy-to-digest way, without being pedantic, boring or condescending. Fine books.
