From city to woods, Sam moves away from his crowded apartment into the wilderness .But, that comes at a price! Because until the wilderness becomes suitable he endures a terrible struggle.Read to find out what kind of a struggle he endures and what kind of a disappointment he suffers!!

I really enjoyed this book! It was descriptive to the point that you could imagine yourself in it! I felt the meaning is to inform readers how fast our society is evolving and how devastating over development can be! I also thought it was interesting that parents would let their kids go and live in the wild. This is a exciting because he met all kinds of different people in the wilderness.

Id recommend this this book to an outdoors-type person because it has a lot of complicated meanings to find out!
