My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George (J)

My Side of the Mountain

Jean Craighead George (Juvenile Fiction)

When Sam Gribley decided to run away from his New York apartment and live in the Catskill Mountains, everyone laughed…even his own father.  But that is exactly what he did, armed with only a penknife, ball of cord, ax, flint and steel, and $40 from selling magazine subscriptions.  With grit, determination, skill, and courage, Sam not only survives on the mountain, but discovers things about himself that he never thought possible.  Beautifully detailed and crafted, My Side of the Mountain is a story for all ages and for all time.

Rating: 5/5
