There are some other fascinating stories about wilderness life: "The Island Keeper" by Harry Mazer (about a girl surviving on a small island in a huge lake), "Cold River" by William Judson takes place in the early thirties in the Adirondacks, and author Gary Larson did write two books about a boy called Brian who survived an airplane crash and is forced to live through a winter in the woods.
One of the best wilderness books for kids is "Brendon Chase" by B. B.
It's also available as a British TV series.
Moreover there are 3 beautiful autobiographies by Kathrene Pinkerton (out of print, but well worth getting used via amazon.com!) and Anne LaBastille ("Woodswoman" and "Beyond Black Bear Lake") that are among the best books I ever read.
