Far Side had a very satisfying ending which could have concluded the series very nicely, but there's still one more book in the series. I can't wait to read Frightful's Mountain, after this!. Nov 20, 2013 Trevor Wetzel rated it really liked it. On the Far Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George, is about a teenage boy, Sam Gribley, who lives in the wilderness with his sister, Alice. Student Name: Quinn Dittmann Date Submitted: April 26th Book Title: On the Far Side of the Mountain Lexile:630. Personal Response: Personally, this was definitely one of the best books I've ever read. I'm the outdoorsy type, and that's exactly what this book was.

Jean Craighead George was the preeminent nature writer for children. She is the author of My Side of the Mountain and Julie of the Wolves, and her work spanned 50 years. I recently purchased "My Side of the Mountain" to read with my nine year old daughter. Before we were done, I realized that I needed to get this sequel to it. I enjoyed this book, but not nearly as much as the first, to me it seemed a little bit forced, almost as though there were an agenda for writing it.

I read the first book as a girl and loved it. I recently purchased "My Side of the Mountain" to read with my nine year old daughter. Before we were done, I realized that I needed to get this sequel to it.

I enjoyed this book, but not nearly as much as the first, to me it seemed a little bit forced, almost as though there were an agenda for writing it. This one did not have quite the carefree feel to it as the original, which of course we know is common in sequels. I did like the story line of this one and it did build nicely on the first story.

It may be a generational thing, but I found this book less believable than the first book. Even though it was written in the 60's, I find it hard to believe that so many people would know about these young kids living off the land like this without there being considerable grief for the parents, something that was alluded to in the first book.

All in all though, a fun book with a lot of really neat, well thought out, and researched wilderness survival skills included.

"My Side of the Mountain" My Side of the Mountain (Puffin Modern Classics)is a timeless classic that describes a young boy becoming one with nature. It is one of the rare stories that can appeal to both young and old. "On the Far Side of the Mountain" (OTFSOTM) is the sequel that takes place about a year later.

Amazon does a great job of capturing what the story is about so I will not go over the basics of the plot. However, "On the Far Side of the Mountain" is unable to recapture all of the original's charm. One of the problems is that the story is complicated and made messy - compared to the simple "Boy vs. Nature" conflict/theme of the original. OTFSOTM focuses less on "Boy vs Nature" and more on "Boy vs. Man" and the exploitation of the environment - you get the impression that Jean Craighead George is more intent on making a point about protecting endangered species and less on how Sam is able to enjoy his natural environment (which I found a powerful statement in the original). In fact, Sam focuses less on his love for his natural surroundings than his disdain for the ways of society - such as his refusal to eat at a restaurant.

Overall, I would still highly recommend OTFSOTM for both kids and adults. However, I do think that kids could learn a lesson on the need to protect animals and the environment. 4 stars

This is a good book, but not as enjoyable as My Side of the Mountain. I did not recommend it to my 10 year old grandson because as a camper he enjoyed the way Sam was able to rough it and live off of the land. Also the loss of Frightful would have been disappointing to him.

What a great book for a ten year old child. I only don't recommend it if your child has no love of the outdoors or nature as it is about a boy who runs away and lives on the side of a mountain.
It is an adventure that is written so gently. Each chapter presents the boy with a problem he has to overcome and then takes us through his adventure.
Yes, it is very old fashioned but a lovely antidote to all the dystopian fantasy fiction that is around at the moment for kids.

it was good. I enjoyed it a lot but it did seem a little short

I love this trilogy. I began with the original book but wish the author had written more on this boy's adventure.

This was a present/request from my friend who is always looking for books she can read and share with her 12-year old son. They were both very excited to get the book and are carefully selecting a limited number of pages to read each day so they can extend the reading experience.
super good book (movie sucks his falcon dies its stupid and sad the falcon is the main character ) any way super good book I highly recommend it
(9 year old boy)
