Setting Hatchet by Gary Paulsen Time :Modern time Place: Canadian Wilderness Season: Summer Mood: The mood is sometimes depressed but Brian likes the view he has and the beautiful environment surprises and pleases him. He is also surprised that the environment is always teeming with life.
Survival tips Never eat any plants you are not sure what they are or if they are poisonous. Never drink water that comes from a lake or stream without boiling and sterilizing it first. Mushrooms can be very dangerous if you eat the wrong ones.
Researched facts The fool bird as Brian would call it are actually Rough Grouses named fool hens by trappers because of their stupidity. The gut cherries Brian ate are really called chokecherries or choke berries.
Animal Life In the Canadian wilderness there are such animals as bears, shrews, moose and skunks and polar bears in the colder parts of Canada. Black bears usually eat plants, nuts, and berries so it isn't a surprise that it was eating raspberries Most animals are afraid to attack the black bear so they have very few enemies. The usually look for their dens in hollow logs, in caves, and under fallen trees. They are the smallest bear in north America and have stubby tails and sharp claws.
Animal life continued The skunk can be found in southern parts of Canada. Skunks sleep during the day and get their food at night They usually eat plants, larvae, small rodent, lizards, berries, roots,leaves, grasses, and eggs. Skunks cannot see well but have a good sense of smell. Skunks having a good sense is why the skunk in Brian’s den was able to smell the eggs Skunks eat eggs so it is not unusual that in Brian's den he was digging up the eggs. Skunks have sharp claws that are good for digging. The skunks enemies are badgers, bobcats, foxes, eagles, coyotes and large owls. They usually attack the skunk when they get really hungry.
Plant Life Some of the types of trees in the Canadian wilderness are Birch trees,Willow trees, Mountain ash and Alder trees. Some trees that are in the Canadian wilderness are conifers and hearty trees.
