Must appreciate campfire cooking, getting dirty, sleeping in trees, time spent alone, and wild beauty.

This is a great book for boys. Though I loved it when I was a girl too. Here is a boy that runs away to the woods and is able to make a home for himself. A smart kid that doesn't need to be rescued at the end! Great fun!
