Overview

Thirteen-year old Teddy Eccles is a devotee of Thoreau, as most everybody else was in 1969. Eccles decides to spend a one-year sabbatical in the Canadian woods. His immediate companion is his pet raccoon; his spiritual companion is idealistic librarian Chris Wiggins, who supplies Eccles with books on survival. Reality intrudes when another of Eccles' kindred spirits, a falcon, is killed by insensitive hunters. But the boy survives this disillusionment with the help of Wiggins and wandering-troubadour Theodore Bikel. My Side of the Mountain is a refreshingly non-condescending adaptation of the novel by Jean Craighead George.

    I think that my side of the mountain is a great book it is full

    I think that my side of the mountain is a great book it is full of adventure and excitement. I think that this book is well written and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I think that you will read this book cover to cover. The young boy had run away from home, most children claim that they are going to run away but, usually won’t even go to the end of their street. This young boy had actually gone off to live in the woods on his own! As the book goes on he faces more and more challenges throughout the book.

    this book is very interesting

    So today I was asked to write a book review. The book I will be doing it on my side of the mountain. I really enjoyed reading this survival style book. I also tried to relate some of the stuff Sam does into some of the stuff I do.<BR/> The story begins with a boy who gets mad and says he¿s going to run away to the cat skills. But his parents don¿t believe him. So one day he braves up enough and he runs away. Then he starts looking for a place to live. He chooses a huge oak tree and bores out the center of it until it was six feet tall and about six feet high. Then Sam see¿s a falcon and decides to follows it the face of a big cliff and climbs it to the top where the nest was. He tries to take a nestling and the parent falcon attacked him several times but he does get the little falcon.<BR/> Then after a while Sam tries training the bird which is the same bird that is in frightful side of the mountain. Then once san gets adapted to the new environment he starts trying to make deadfalls and several other different styles of traps in hope of catching something. Then once he catches his first animal he tries to upgrade his first couple of traps. Also when Sam see¿s his trout in the river he immediately makes a fishing pole. He makes the pole out of a branch the string out of a plant stem and the hook out of sharpened twigs that are tied together to make a hook.<BR/> In several ways I can relate to the story because of where I live at here in west virginia. In one way I can relate is sam hunts and I hunt. We also can relate because I like being outdoors and he likes being outdoors. One other way I can relate to sam is because it took me a long time before I got my first deer and it took sam a long time to.<BR/> So my conclusion on this book is that it was very interesting and kept me on my toes. I would rate this book on a scale of 1-10 I would rate it a 9. I would recommend this book for teens and young adults. Overall this is one of the best books I have ever read.
