About the Book
American novelist Gary Paulsen is best known for his young adult fiction, including bestsellers Nightjohn, Soldier’s Heart and Woods Runner. From his trenchant prose in The Rifle and The Foxman to the witty escapades of Harris and Me and Zero to Sixty, Paulsen crafts stories with impressive range. The tender scenes in The Quilt and A Christmas Sonata speak to his empathy for children, with characters who endure the same hardships that marred his own early life.
This literary companion introduces readers to his life and work. An A-to-Z guide explores themes such as alcoholism, coming of age, slavery, survival and war. A glossary defines terms unique to his work. Appendices provide related historical references, writing, art, and research topics.
