"For anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to run away and live in the woods, Jean Craighead George's award-winning classic is still appealing to hearts and minds with her story of a young man who does just that. A novel of survival, bravery, and self-discovery that still resonates with kids about to enter their teen years." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
"Should appeal to all rugged individualists who dream of escape to the forest."—The New York Times Book Review
Sam Gribley is terribly unhappy living in New York City with his family, so he runs away to the Catskill Mountains to live in the woods—all by himself. With only a penknife, a ball of cord, forty dollars, and some flint and steel, he intends to survive on his own. Sam learns about courage, danger, and independence during his year in the wilderness, a year that changes his life forever.
“An extraordinary book . . . It will be read year after year.” —The Horn Book
