About This Book
Every kid thinks about running away at one point or another; few get farther
than the end of the block. Young Sam Gribley gets to the end of the block and
keeps going--all the way to the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. There he
sets up house in a huge hollowed-out tree, with a falcon and a weasel for
companions and his wits as his tool for survival. In a spellbinding, touching,
funny account, Sam learns to live off the land, and grows up a little in the
process. Blizzards, hunters, loneliness, and fear all battle to drive Sam back
to city life. But his desire for freedom, independence, and adventure is
stronger. No reader will be immune to the compulsion to go right out and start
whittling fishhooks and befriending raccoons.
Jean Craighead George, author of more than 80 children's books, including the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves, 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 its sequel, On the Far Side of the Mountain, 30 years later, and a decade after that penned the final book in the trilogy, Frightful's Mountain, told from the falcon's point of view. George has no doubt shaped generations of young readers with her outdoor adventures of the mind and spirit.
