\n* Literary example: ''Literature/IslandOfTheBlueDolphins'' details the survival of a Nicoleño girl, Karana, who is left stranded on her island when her people are taken away on a ship. Initially, she and her brother Ramo work together to gather food and maintain their home, but when he is killed by a pack of wild dogs she must survive on her own - for nearly two decades.
* Literary example: ''Literature/TunnelInTheSky'', which starts off with a group of high school students sent on a survival test on an uninhabited planet. The test is meant to last a few days at the most, but they realize they're stranded when no one comes to retrieve them. The students must band together to survive on the alien planet until they can be rescued - however long that takes.

* ''WesternAnimation/RaceForYourLifeCharlieBrown'' (1977) The Peanuts gang has a white water race down a river in the wildnerness and encounter numerous perils and hazards along the way with Charlie Brown learning a little bit about leadership and getting some self respect-though it isn't much.

* ''The Adventures of the Wilderness Family'' (1975) has a Los Angeles family move to the Canadian wilderness (though the film was shot in Colorado) to live a better life off the grid -- building their own cabin, befriending a mountain man, and dealing with both friendly and dangerous wild animals along the way. One of the more successful independent films of the 1970s, it yielded two sequels by decade's end and even warranted a parody by ''Creator/{{Troma}}'', 1985's ''When Nature Calls''.

* Arguably, Christopher [=McCandless=], as documented in the biography (and film) ''[[Film/IntoTheWild]]'' tried to pull this off in real life. He was a upper-class college graduate who gave away all of his money to charities, hitchhiked across America, then tried to live through the winter in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness. The subversion comes in when he was found dead the next spring, having accidentally poisoned or starved himself to death.

** Despite the deconstruction, [[MisaimedFandom there is a noticeable amount of people who see McCandless's story as "inspiring" and have expressed their desire to emulate him.]] To the extent that fans of the movie and book do pilgrimages to the bus site. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/2008-06-30-1898419718_x.htm This bewilders many local Alaskans, who don't understand how so many people became obsessed with a young man--who in their minds, is just one of ''many'' people who have gone into the wilderness unprepared and died before their time.

* ''RaceForYourLifeCharlieBrown'' (1977) The Peanuts gang has a white water race down a river in the wildnerness and encounter numerous perils and hazards along the way with Charlie Brown learning a little bit about leadership and getting some self respect-though it isn't much.
* ''TheLandBeforeTime'' (1988) could almost be a complete example, execpt that the "kids" in this case are juvenile dinosaurs, and the villain in question is a predatory T-rex that is stalking them.

* ''TheRescuers Down Under'' (1990) although it should be mentioned that unlike many other examples, the boy protagonist of this movie actually lives in the Australian outback and therefore know his way around in the wilderness.

* ''The Amazing Panda Adventure'' (1995) is your standard-issue one of these. That is, aside from a bizarre scene in which the young boy and girl (thankfully not siblings in this case) decide to get naked... well, not so much "decide" as "panic and strip while trying to get rid of the ''leeches''", but still rather unexpected.
