Wrote Hatchet and a book I love a lot called Winterdance. It’s the true story of how he put a team of dogs together and raced in the Iditarod with almost no proper training. It’s nuts and I loved it.
I remember Hatchet. I had no idea he’d done all that other stuff.
Wow, that librarian story made me choke up. RIP, Mr. Paulsen.
He has a story about he and his dogs getting sprayed by skunks that is just hilarious. His attempt to run the Iditarod was so hilarious and great.
I recommend Winterdance to everyone. It’s an amazing book and not aimed at a young adult audience at all.
