"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
The best wilderness survival book you can get
I really love nature in a Christian worldview, and although there is no Christianity in this book, it is the best. Owls and trees are my favorite parts of nature, and this book has many many pages about trees, as well as a small but knowledgeable and understanding paragraph about the remote and isolated great horned owl. 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Have not yet finished the book it is so awesome
I reminds me of when I lived in the city
I really like this book. I’m usually not really into wildlife and stuff, but this book changed that about me. Please buy!
