I read this book several times in elementary school I lived and died on the advice of the school's librarian and she had convinced me to read every Newberry award winner in the library I felt like I was reading something important every time I did Who doesn't want to run away sometime in their life That's not the aspect of the book that most drew me but what a great a way to start the story I doubt I had many survival skills under my belt when I read the book but heaven knows I wished I did I was fascinated with the detailed accounts of traps and living in a tree becoming a falconer and eating wild plants Plus he does it all on his own no adults allowed 4th 6th grade
