This weeks question:
...which is a story about a 12 year-old girl, Karana who is abandoned on an island in the Pacific due to unfortunate circumstances. Alone for 18 years she finds strength and peace in her solitude. AGAIN, it was the survival story that amazed me and held my attention and I re-read this book several times.
This was a story of a young boy, Sammy Gibley who decides to take off into the Catskill Mountains and lives for an entire year inside of a hollowed-out tree. He almost doesn't survive the horrible winter! They made a TV movie in 1969 but I remember being very disappointed because I guess it is very boring to make a movie about someone who is all alone...remember Tom Hanks in Cast Away...I rest my case ;)
