Publisher's Summary

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, 40 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.

©1999 Jean Craighead George; (P)2007 Penguin Group USA

    Story
    "My side of the mountain"

    I am an older person that can relate to the feelings of this young man wanting to connect to his past all the while believing solely in himself to make it on his own. This is a great book for young teenagers on up to the older generation that want to relive their adventures as a youth.

    "Nostalgic"

    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.
