About the Author:

GARY PAULSEN has written nearly two hundred books for young people, including the Newbery Honor Books Hatchet, Dogsong, and The Winter Room. He divides his time between a home in New Mexico and a boat on the Pacific Ocean.

From Publishers Weekly:

Paulsen's notable adult trade debut, Clabbered Dirt, Sweet Grass , and 16 award-winning YA novels precede this gripping memoir of a tumultuous childhood. "My mother and I spent the war years in Chicago," he begins, explaining that after his birth in 1939 his father left the home to serve as a member of Patton's staff. The unglossed and indelible accounts that follow center on Paulsen's pretty, tough mother. As a toddler he watched her slay a man who had tried to molest him; later, he was all too aware of her sexual indulgences. He was seven when they sailed aboard a troop ship for Manila to reunite with his father. The voyage, however, occasioned still more horrors. With the helpless crew, he watched as passengers from a downed plane were eaten or torn apart by sharks, a scene he details here in all its brutality. In the Philippines, he was to undergo newly shattering experiences, which he relates with candor and feeling. Author tour.
