Gary Paulsen was steered towards reading when he was young by a local librarian. In a recent interview, Gary says that this librarian pretty much saved his life. He's been hooked ever since. When Gary was young, he didn't have parents that were a guiding light. He got into some trouble here and there. Books helped keep him off the streets. It is my observation that Gary writes for the young person. Maybe he feels like targeting the youth with tales of young people overcoming obstacles will help change their lives as his was changed by finding the library.
