My sister raved about this book. My niece raved about this book. I now see why.
Sam decides he is tired of living with his big family in a tiny New York City apartment and he ups and leaves for a family farm in the wild. Amazingly, he is able to find food and water and shelter for himself and to keep himself alive for months and months, even during the snowiest days of winter. And, even more amazingly, his parents are fine with this.
Very good book.
