the wild boy

A small boy, abandoned at birth. He was in and out of homes for years. Being moved and pushed around, he grew sick of his life. One day, he packed his bad and ran. He ran for the river. He made a raft of logs and set sail. He came upon a small island, with a few trees and bushes. He built a small shelter. Learned to fish and hunt using his craft and instincts, the boy grew up surviving in the wild. More happy and free than he had ever been in a house he could never call home.
