Joy | 217 comments I reread this book today after having read it originally in 4th grade. I think it compares a lot to Hatchet, except that Sam chooses to leave society and live in the woods, where Brian is forced to survive in the woods because of the plane crash. I much prefer this book to Julie of the Wolves as it is way more upbeat.
