Thank you for your thoughtful reviews. I'm a librarian and it does make a difference in my knowledge of children's literature and in my own recommendations to children, teens and families. Thank you Debbie. I couldn't agree more. I found his characterization of natives offensive. Your opinion confirms that I will not be using this book in my classroom.

Thank you for your thoughtful reviews. I'm a librarian and it does make a difference in my knowledge of children's literature and in my own recommendations to children, teens and families. Thank you Debbie. I couldn't agree more. I found his characterization of natives offensive. Your opinion confirms that I will not be using this book in my classroom. When this book was first printed, stereotyping people of race, religion or cultures could be found everywhere. In my opinion both author and publisher need to take a good look back at this book and either do revisions or take it out of print.
But if we have authors writing fiction today for readers, historical facts should be accurate. Maybe the way to use this book in a class is to point out the inaccuracies and assign students to search out the truth.
I feel that we also need to look at how can we help students to learn about the inaccurate portrayal of the American Indian whether in this time period or modern day. If we ignore, put aside, or ban any piece of literature, then we children and adults stay stuck in that thinking but if we carefully, thoughtfully, and accurately use a piece of literature to discuss stereotypes, inaccuracies, racism, etc then our next generation learns to reshape their thinking and so do we.
Post a Comment. Here's my notes, summarized by chapter. Sometimes I put my comments in italics beneath each chapter. First, though, let's look a bit at Gary Paulsen. The Hatchet series is also known as Brian's Saga, because the protagonist is a kid named Brian who survives a plane crash, alone, in the Canadian wilderness.
Tucket was Paulsen's first book. It, too, is about survival. For every Female Penobscot Indian taken and brought in as aforesaid and for Every Male Indian Prisoner under the age of twelve Years taken and brought in as aforesaid Twenty five Pounds. For every Scalp of such Female Indian or Male Indian under the Age of twelve years that Shall be killed and brought in as Evidence of their being killed as aforesaid, Twenty pounds.
