My Side of the Mountain

Tonight I’ve been thinking about all the places I escaped to as a child.  Mostly I escaped by the books I read.  I remember reading, “The Island of the Blue Dolphin”, and escaping to a beautiful island.  One of my favorite books was “My side of the Mountain”, I remember reading this in the 5th grade, where a young boy runs away from home to live in the mountains, he keeps a journal of his life in nature.  He befriends a falcon.  I often fantacized about leaving home to live in the solitude of nature, sometimes I still do.  I loved the way my Papa made me feel when we were off together just the two of us.  What was passed on was truly a blessing.  I think I need to find this book and read it again.
