RIP Gary Paulsen.
When I was a kid, if you wrote it, I read it.
You have given us the best of friends. You will forever be missed.
Rest in Peace, Gary Paulsen.
I know many mushers—myself included—who first fell in love with mushing through Gary Paulsen’s stories about his sled dogs. He changed lives in big ways; he wrote about wilderness, animals, fear, wonder with extraordinary grace. An incredible writer. May he rest in peace. https://t.co/YEtGDHKJdE

"Hell, boy, he's gay, he's not a pervert." A simple but important distinction that protected me through adolescence.
Thank you and rest in peace, Gary Paulsen. The first author to show that nothing was wrong with me, that there was space for me in this world.

“The most, MOST important thing is to read. Read all the time; read when they tell you not to read, what they tell you not to read, read with a flashlight under the covers ... Read every minute you can. READ LIKE A WOLF EATS. Read.” - Gary Paulsen 1939 - 2021

Damn. I read a Gary Paulsen's books as a kid. As much of a computer and video game nerd as I was, I also loved the outdoors, camping and spending time in nature. His books meant a lot to me, especially Hatchet and Dogsong. Rest in peace, sir. https://t.co/F0Jzypz48U

aw, man, Gary Paulsen died. Reading his books as a kid really got me through some shit. Real bummer.
RIP Gary Paulsen...
I usually don't give much attention to "celebrity" deaths or news.
However I cannot possibly guess how many times I've read 'Hatchet'.
Loved that book.
RIP Gary Paulsen. You made many children believe they could possibly survive a plane crash.
RIP Gary Paulsen #Hatchet
Happy Birthday Jimin

I taught non-reading 11 yo, mostly boys. Always began the school year with Woodsong, by Gary Paulsen. Local, realistic fiction my students would get hooked on, Loved his adult writing too.
