My Side of the Mountain
By Jean Craighead George
My side of the mountain is the remarkable story of a boy named Sam Gribley, who has left the crowded New Yok City life to live off the land in Catskill Mountains. While living in solitude among nature, the only company he has for months is his falcon named Frightful. The book is considered a masterpiece of children’s literature and a great means to learn about nature and how to live in harmony with it. Two of its fantastic sequels are Far Side of the Mountain, and Frightful’s Mountain.
