My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
My Side of the Mountain is about a boy named Sam Gribley, who is tired of the city and living in a crowded apartment with his family in New York. He decides to go to Delhi and seek out the old Gribley Farm, which currently has no residence living there, and make his home in the woods and live off what nature has to offer. This book is packed full of exciting adventures and interesting events. I don't want to give away too many details, but I will say that I highly recommend reading this book.
