I'm looking for help remembering the title/author of a book I read probably 15-20 years ago about a boy who ends up (runs away?) in the Appalachian Mountains, where he lives for a couple years learning survival skills. I think he lived in a large hollowed-out tree, learned to kill deer using deadfalls, learned to tan deer hides for clothing, etc. Not sure if it was based on a true story or not. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'm trying to pass on some books to my 8yo who loves to read. Thanks to anyone with ideas!
