How to Vote
An enthusiastic tomboy with a propensity for climbing trees and building forts, I was completely dazzled by this wilderness escape. At the end of the week I wanted to steal a canoe, row over to the other side of the lake, and live off the land for the rest of my life. Instead I went home and proceeded to obsessively read wilderness survival novels. With The Kings of Summer in theaters, I was reminded of my lingering affinity for classic tales of survival and self-reliance. These are a few of my childhood favorites. Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. In Hatchet , thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is stranded alone in the wilderness following a deadly plane crash.
