Tries to drown himself in the lake
Cuts himself with the hatchet
Jumps off the ledge above his shelter
Wrestles with a bear
Brian’s arrows were not sharp enough to pierce the skin of the fish
Brian was not fast enough to hit the fish and they swam away
The water bent the light making the fish look like they were in a different place than where they really were
The fish stayed in the deep water and Brian could not get close enough to catch them
A place to get out of the rain
The turtle eggs
Moved to a new location
Rebuilt his shelter
Decided to keep a bright fire at all times
Kept his hatchet close at hand for fighting off animals
Because he was itchy from all the bug bites
To get rid of the skunk odor
To cool off during the heat wave
On the ledge above his shelter
Tied in his jacket and hung up in the tall trees
Buried in the sand under his sleeping mat
In a bowl-shaped rock
A dead pine
The wing of the airplane
Brian tied the fish with one of his shoelaces and hung them in a tree.
Brian wove a basket from small branches and placed it at the edge of the lake.
Brian put the fish on his storage shelf.
Brian built a holding pen out of rocks at the edge of the lake.
