    great triology by a great author

    This great triology of books are really good reading. You'll especially enjoy them if you love nature like me. The first book is really good and is about this boy named Sam who runs away from home to go live in the Catskill mountains. He steals a baby Peregrine falcon from its nest and trains it to hunt with him. Together Frightful and him have some really great adventures. The second book isn't as good but you need to read it to understand the third book. The third book is by far the best book in my opinion. It is from Frightful (the falcon's) point of view and is very interesting and touching but in a good way.

    My Side of the Mountain

    I read this book back when I was in 7th grade in 1991. I also got a chance to meet the author. This story takes place in my hometown of Delhi, NY and the mountain describes the mountains in the local area, specifically those up behind the school itself since the library mentioned in the book is one that I frequented as a child growing up, and knowing its location I can nearly pinpoint where the story takes place. It was a very good read and one that I would encourage young readers to try. I myself am going to purchase the trilogy now, not only for myself as an adult, but also for my now 10 year old son.

    My Side of the Mountain (trilogy)

    All three books are well constructed and capture the readers full attention. The series is about a boy named Sam Gribley who runs away to the Catskill Mountains, keeping company with a perigrine falcon and a few friends that happen to stumble upon his hideout. Directed to young adults.

    Good

    These were great books! I was really disappionted about the release of, shall I say, "Destiny." But then I suppose it got better once J.C.G. continued to talk about "Destiny." It was OK, but it was a lower reading level for me. My favorite book, I would have to say, is the first. I read the books mainly to enjoy the way that this boy survived in the forest. It was amazing with what he came up with.
