When you were a child, did you ever decide to try to run away and have an adventure? Did you dream of making it on your own, hitting it big, or living off the land?
Those of us who tried it were generally back by the time we got hungry, but there always remains just that little bit of “what if?” What would that adventure be like? My Side of the Mountain (Puffin Modern Classics) fulfills that urge, and more. This classic story has it all: beautiful writing, a main character you can grow to love, an engaging plot, and tons of learning opportunities!
