      It was a very interesting book. If you like the outdoors and would like to learn about survival skills, this book would be good for you. It is about a kid named sam that ran away from the city to live in the catskill woods. Will he make it?

              I like this book because most of us are not brave enough to go live in the woods by are selfies. I think that Sam Grible is a brave boy and i would not be brave enough to do things that he does. I recommend this boo because if you like to be outside then this is the book for you.I f my friend read this book I think she would want to be outside more than she already is which she is outside a lot.

                      This book is one of my favorite books that I have read, because it is very adventurous. IT is also makes you want to read more witch is something I real like in a book. I recommend this book because it is very descriptive and a very meaningful. Also this book is not only about a boy living in the wilderness it is also about family and friends and how they love you no matter what. So this is why I gave this book a 5/5 and recommend it.
