Young Sam Gribley gets to the end of the block and keeps going--all theway to the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. There he sets up house in a huge hollowed-outtree, with a falcon and a weasel for companions and his wits as his tool for survival. In aspellbinding, touching, funny account, Sam learns to live off the land, and grows up a little in theprocess. Blizzards, hunters, loneliness, and fear all battle to drive Sam back to city life. But hisdesire for freedom, independence, and adventure is stronger. No reader will be immune to thecompulsion to go right out and start whittling fishhooks and befriending raccoons. Jean CraigheadGeorge, author of more than 80 children's books, including the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of theWolves, created another prizewinner with My Side of the Mountain--a Newbery Honor Book, an ALA   Notable Book, and a Hans Christian Andersen Award Honor Book. Astonishingly, she wrote itssequel, On the Far Side of the Mountain, 30 years later, and a decade after that penned the finalbook in the trilogy, Frightful's Mountain, told from the falcon's point of view. George has no doubtshaped generations of young readers with her outdoor adventures of the mind and spirit.

By Ksod25 My husband read this book as achild and wanted me to experience it. It made you want to keep reading. When I got to the end I wassad.

By Wendell Bosworth I read the first book as a child and loved it then(and now.) It is what got me fascinated with "survival" skills aka living off the land in the wild. Ienjoyed rereading it, partly for itself and partly for nostalgia. I remember movie critics Siskel andEbert saying the way to evaluate a sequel, is to ask yourself whether, without the srcinal, you'dnevertheless enjoy it. Applying that approach to the second and third books in the trilogy (writtensome 40 years after the first): Yes, I'd have enjoyed them as stand-alones but, as such, I'd likely havegiven them only 2 or 3 stars whereas the srcinal was definitely 5 star material - for the age group atwhich it seemed to be targeting: boys and girls 12-18(?) 1 of 1 people found the following reviewhelpful. Extremely well written, a definitel page turner. By Deanna I read My Side of the Mountainwhen I was in junior high school, and I wanted to get this book for my son. I read it before I gave itto him, and I couldn't put it down. Each night I read one of the the trilogy and I remembered why Iloved it so much as a kid. My son is in 2nd grade and now he is reading it too. He is young, but readsnon stop so a novel isn't too much for him. I am so glad I finally own this book, it's a great book toturn kids onto reading, and it is a great book for all ages. See all 1021 customer reviews...
