Paulsen inspired generations of young readers with novels about the beauty, wonder and danger of the wilderness — most notably “Hatchet,” about a boy who learns to survive on his own in the Canadian bush — while drawing on his own adventures as a sled-dog racer and restless outdoorsman. He wrote more than 200 books that collectively sold more than 35 million copies, and was honored for his contributions to young-adult literature with the American Library Association’s 1997 Margaret A. Edwards Award. Three of his novels were named Newbery Honor Books: “Dogsong” (1985), about an Inuit boy who embarks on a journey of self-discovery with a team of sled dogs; “The Winter Room” (1989), about life on a Minnesota farm; and “Hatchet” (1987), which inspired four sequels and helped turned Mr. Paulsen into a YA superstar.
