Sam Gribley lives in New York City with his  family of eleven. When the family cancels their vacation to the mountains, Sam is determined to live alone in the woods, adapting to and surviving nature's challenges. Surprisingly, his parents do not resist the idea. Sam is challenged by all nature can throw at him in the way of weather and animal behavior. His observations of the wild lead to his success in beating the odds of a modern day child surviving in the woods with no help from other humans and little in the way of supplies.
