Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"[T]his award-winning book has much to appeal to young readers searching for literary adventures." Children's Literature
