'Should appeal to all rugged individualists who dream of escape to the forest.'—The New York Times Book Review

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. 

 “An extraordinary book . . . It will be read year after year.”
—The Horn Book

Our whole family loved Sam and his spirit!! What an adventure!!! This will definitely get a second or third listen. What I the mom loved especially about this book, is it's simplicity and peaceful nature.

Wonderful! My 8-year-old grandson and I listened in the car to and from everywhere! We even sat in the car to continue listening after we reached our destinations. Wonderfully written! Wonderfully narrated! We purchased "Frightful's Mountain." We can hardly wait to get started!
