Sam Gribley has been living alone in the woods all summer, but fall has arrived and the fear of winter has forced Sam to think of new ways to survive on his own. Through his survival on his own he has befriended and tamed a falcon, named Frightful, and Sam analyzes other animal’s characteristics to help him figure out how he is going to survive. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Reading, 2005)
