The Lost Boys novelization (unabridged audiobook)
Lost Trail: Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness
Aug 25, PM. I was read this book in as a 6th grader. The plane crashes into a lake. The boys survive. One of the 2 boys is just getting over being in an iron lung and works to.
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.
