About My Side of the Mountain
“A vivid character at the vortex of convincing and real adventure.”
– Kirkus Reviews
My Side of the Mountain,” penned by Jean Craighead George in 1959, is an adventure novel aimed at young adults. This literary work narrates the tale of Sam Gribley, a young lad who escapes from his residence in New York City, opting to reside in the untamed wilderness of the Catskill Mountains.
With unwavering determination to subsist solely on resources from nature and establish his self-sufficiency, Sam constructs a dwelling, devises traps, engages in food gathering through hunting, and explores the encompassing woods. During his journey, he forms connections with various creatures, including a hawk, a weasel, and a bear, all the while accumulating valuable survival skills and cultivating a profound reverence for the environment.
While Sam’s sojourn in the wild endures, he encounters trials such as severe weather, the pangs of hunger, and the menace of wild fauna. Yet, he also stumbles upon the splendor and tranquility of coexisting harmoniously with the natural world, uncovering the genuine significance of independence and self-discovery.
“My Side of the Mountain” stands as a timeless portrayal of a young person’s voyage into adulthood, which glorifies human determination and the enduring influence of the natural realm. This enduring narrative has earned an array of accolades and remains an adored account of exploration and self-revelation.
