Children and Youth Books

Skills:

Field Guide to Nature and Survival for Children:  Tom Brown Jr.

Stories/Novels:

My Side of the Mountain:  Jean Craighead George  This was my favorite book growing up. It’s a story of a boy who runs away to the Catskill Mountains to learn to live off the land. It is a grand adventure and has many lessons as he learns and makes mistakes. 

A Home for Harley:  Debbie Tremel  This beautifully illustrated book was written by a Tracker student and the story is of one girl’s unexpected journey to connecting with nature. Perfect for reading to younger kids or for young readers.
