Gary Paulsen is well known for his novels about surviving.
Now, he’s sharing his own story about survival.
Back in January, Paulsen released a memoir, written for the same demographic that absorbed his fiction, called Gone to the Woods: Surviving a Lost Childhood.
It, as well as his interview with NPR’s Samantha Balaban, shares the real-life experiences that colored such YA novels as Hatchet, Tracker, and The Haymeadow.
You can read a transcript of the interview with Paulsen on NPR’s website or listen to the segment below.
