Now here is a great book. The first book I read aloud to my daughter, a few years back. It was a joy to read to her, just as it was so long ago when I read it to myself. A boy who runs away to the woods and lives off the land, is self reliant, in tune with nature, making a go of it all. Maybe this is where my Alaska Cabin fixation comes into play. Lord knows, I do not want to root around in a hollowed out tree, as did Master Sam Gribley. Cabin with a fire and running water is my preference.
