Raspberry Hot Chocolate
One of Brian's biggest
challenges in Hatchet is finding food. First he discovers choke
cherries. Brian knows these berries are not poisonous because the birds
eat them. They are extremely bitter, but with pangs of hunger Brian is
forced to eat them. Later in Chapter 7, Brian locates a raspberry patch.
What a find! Even with the threat of a bear who also likes raspberries,
Brian gathers enough berries to eat some and save some for later. After
reading about Brian's discovery we made raspberry hot chocolate. Here's
