As the plot unfolds, readers will revise their predictions as the story unfolds. Brian is the first to use a spear, which doesn’t work. He then uses a hatchet to create a shelter that will keep him warm while he waits for rescue. But what did he decide to do with the food inside the survival bag?

Brian’s first spear doesn’t work

The hunt begins when the food in his survival bag is not enough to sustain him. Brian marks the days in a stone near his shelter door to track real time. He is craving real meat and knows there are many small animals around him, including a bird called a foolbird, which stands perfectly still and blends into its surroundings. Brian sets out to catch a foolbird, but his first spear doesn’t work.

The next day, Brian is standing on the edge of a lake, trying to catch a fish. His first spear is useless as the fish are moving too quickly. He makes a two-prong spear, but soon realizes that he needs to telegraph his motion before thrusting the spear and that a spring would help the spear move forward faster. So he decides to “invent” the bow and arrow.

Brian’s first meal

Despite his initial apprehension, Brian is surprised to find that his first meal with the food inside the survival bag is a meat. A fish, which is his favorite food, is so elusive that he nearly dies when something digs through his eggs. As a result, Brian begins to learn patience and the importance of food. The survival bag is a key part of Brian’s evolution.

In order to eat, Brian must find a way to scare the birds away from the survival bag. First, he must find a way to catch the fish using a fish spear or bow and arrow. He misses each time, but learns to move carefully back and forth, side to side and front to back. He also learns how to properly clean the bird, including saving the tail feathers for arrows.

Brian’s reaction to the survival bag

As he explores the contents of the survival bag, he discovers sleeping material, cooking supplies, matches and lighters, a sharp knife, fishing equipment, and a survival rifle. The survival bag highlights the relationship between man and nature, and the way in which we can use objects that we normally use in our daily lives in the wild. Brian’s reaction to the food and water inside the survival bag is fascinating.

The food in the survival bag is not only plentiful, but also delicious. Brian calls the berries he finds “gut cherries,” indicating their flavor and sweetness. However, he decides to eat only small portions at a time. Eventually, he reaches a point where he starts to worry about the lack of fresh fruit. He tries to eat only a small amount of each at a time, so that he can avoid eating the whole bag.

Brian’s reaction to the hatchet

The survival bag is filled with only a few food items. Brian is apprehensive because he thinks he will never see his friends and family again. He tries to kill himself with a hatchet after he accidentally drops the hatchet and breaks through the aluminum covering. He realizes that he has nothing unless he can slash the aluminum with a hatchet.

The survival bag is filled with a variety of food, including a stuffed rabbit and salmon. Brian realizes the value of the pack, as well as the tools and supplies inside. However, he still feels that the survival bag is a hindrance to his peaceful life among the woods. During this time, he tries to tell his father about his experience with the bag and how it has changed him.

When Brian wakes up, he is nauseated and finds a survival pack. However, his memory of his friend Terry and the lean-to shelter they built together makes him want to build a shelter. He also remembers that he’d had to cut the aluminum siding of the plane to gain access to it, so he uses his hatchet to get inside. The hatchet is the only tool Brian cannot afford to lose.
