My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead Goerge

The book My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George is a classic tale about every child's dream: to run away from home and live in the wilderness. In this story, Sam Gribley does just that. He runs away from home with one pair of pants, a shirt, a pair of socks, sneakers, (underwear), $40, and flint to start a fire. He plans to live on his great-great-great-grandfather's property, the Gribley Farm. The first day passes badly, and Sam doesn't have much to eat, but then he figures out that to survive in nature, you have to live and become nature. Don't understand what I mean? Read this book to find out.
