Puffin My Side Of The Mountain

Sam Gribley announces he's going to run away; and does so. After listening to countless stories of how Gribley's aren't made for the land, he runs away to his ancestors' farm up in the Catskill Mountains. Learning to survive with his wits and the help of the resources in a local library, he learns self-reliance as he fashions a home, catches his own food, and trains a falcon. A classic for thousands of young readers, this Newbery Honor book will enthrall all young girls and boys who've ever loved the woods. Recommended for ages 8 to 1, 177 pages, softcover. A 1960 Newbery Honor Book.

My son and I are reading this right now and I don't know who likes it more. It's a great book for a 12 year old boy like mine!

I first read this book nearly 20 years ago as a 5th-grade student. It has remained one of my favorite books of all time. This book fueled my love of the outdoors and my deep interest in wilderness survival and played a big part in my joining the Boy Scouts and eventually earning the Eagle Scout Award. I would strongly encourage this book for any children (and adults!). It will expose them to Sam's experience and perhaps spark the same fire as it did in me.
