Carlos | 5 comments I'm trying to find a book about a boy having to survive in the woods after getting lost during a camping trip.
I remember that soon after getting lost he badly hurts his leg with a wood axe or something similar.
I read this book in the 90s.
Pretty sure in Spain it was published by editorial Everest but I have been unable to find it.

No worries. To add a book link, it's best to use the full Desktop website (not the Mobile site or app).

- Above the Comment box, click add book/author. A popup will open with the "Book" tab selected. Search for your Book title, then click the Add button to insert the book link into your comments.
- Too many books in the search results? Try typing the book title AND author in the "Book" box.
- To add the Author's name as a link, click the "Author" tab near the top of the popup.

Not that one. In Hatchet the boy works to be rescued. In the one I'm looking for the rescue, when it happens it is almost by accident not because the boy did anything.

Unfortunately not.
The boy is completely alone in the book I'm looking for.

Carlos, I added more details to the topic header. Feel free to update it by clicking the small "edit" link after the header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app.

What's the location of the story?

I'll have to check and see if I can read it in kindle unlimited but looks like it.

Thanks!!!
