My Side of the Mountain; Jean Craighead George

This was my childhood favorite- and have read and enjoyed it as an adult as well. It’s the story of you boy who runs away to the Catskills to live for a year off the land. He doesn’t have much experience when he starts, so the story is of his adventures; his successes and failures, and the joy he has living off the land. There are also two sequel books to this story.
