I read this book many times growing up, I wanted to be just like Sam. Listening to this book brought back many memories and made me stop and think about where I am in life now. I highly recommend this to anyone with wanderlust, great for preteens.
This recording of the story is missing page 148 in the paperback edition from 2004. This was discovered as I was listening/reading this novel with my students in class. Very disappointed that it would be missing a page. I'm not even sure how that could happen.
while traveling by car without to listen to book with the children. this book with captivating. the kids couldn't wait for us to turn the book on when getting in the car.
I first read this book when I was young. I would dream that I could do this, start fires with flint and steel, live off the land, eat turtle soup. As I read this, I am right next to Sam.
I read this to my son and have listened to the book several times.
As I sit at my desk, Sam takes me along with him, thanks.

This is a short novel intended for children, but I'm sure that children, young adults and not-so-young adults will all enjoy the experience. It sort of makes you want to run away and live in a tree, or at least acquire a falcon to be your best friend.
Yes, the guy from mountain men! Great story, good narrator... It made me want to move out into the woods!
