Read in December, 2010

This was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. Now, reading it as an adult, I'm struck by how much children's literature has changed even within the past twenty years. This writing would not be Newbery Honor worthy today. Yet it is a fun adventure story and a perfect way to introduce kids to survival stories.
