Survival

Hi everybody!
I want to share this story with all of you.
Hope you enjoy it. :)

Teeenager Brian Robison was travelling from the USA to Canada to see his father.He was the only passenger in a small plane , high above the Canadian mountains , when suddenly the pilot had a hurt attack and died!
Brian was terrified.Below him he could see a lake.He turned the plane towards the lake and landed on the water.He got out of the plane before it sank.
The next morning he was cold and hungry.The boy from New York only had the clothes he was wearing and a small hatchet (a present from his mother).He remember a TV programme about how to survive in the wild.
He started a fire with wood , he made a shelter and he ate fruit and fish.
One day , a few weeks later , Brian was fishing by the lake when he saw a plane above the trees.
He made a fire and the pilot saw the smoke.
Afer fifty-four days in the Canadian woods , Brian´s amazing adventure was finally over.

Hey Stephanie or Priscila,
I don't know which of you it is, but is that story called Hatchet. Because some people on my team(class) read Hatchet and that sounds like what they said it was about. Anyway, thanks for commenting on my blog and check it out on Friday or Saturday to see a post on the play that my school is doing. Keep in touch.

Hi Priscila
Wow! That is Hatchet right? I've heard the story before... it is really interesting and exciting! I can't believe a young boy survived so long in the wild! I wonder how I would go myself, probably not even last long. That gives me an idea. I should read a book about surviving in the wild just in case.
What a BRILLIANT STORY TO SHARE. Thanks for sharing it. Brian sounds like a smart, active, cautious and useful person. He sure knows how to take care of himself.
I just hope I never ever get stuck in such a situation, as goes to you. Take care of yourself and Stephie Priscila eh?
Miss you all! Stay in touch, I have put up a new post. Check it out.
Kisses, Nadine

Hey stephie!

I know they took a lot of money from us. I support some of Obama's opinions and some of Mccains.

Hi Stephie!
This is a wonderful story I will ask my students to come here and read!
What a fabulous adventure for such a young boy! I wonder if he has thought about writing it, about trying to put into words all his feelings and thoughts that he experienced during this lonely and deep expectant period of his life.
