Loved this sequel!

Couldn't put this book down and finished reading in one setting! Definitely recommend to readers of all ages!

On the far side of the mountain is a must read for ANYONE!!!

On the far side of the mountain is SO great. The entire story is written SO perfectly and the ending happily, sadly, and suspenfully sums up the story. If you are going to read On the far side of the mountain, you MUST first read My Side of the mountain to know what is going on. I have read the 1st and 2nd books and i am going to read Frightful's mountain and then Frightful's daughter. Tjis is the best book series i have ever read!!!

Excellent Sequel to MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN

ON THE FAR SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN is the sequel to the Newbery Honor Book, MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN. Jean Craighead George waited 30 years before writing this sequel, mostly under the pressure of her beloved readers. The sequel is just as good, if not better, then the original. It continues the story of Sam Gribley's adventure when he ran away to live off of the land in the Catskill Mountains. This is the story of both Sam and his independent younger sister, Alice, who has joined him in her own treehouse nearby. The story is based on his life after his falcon Frightful has been confiscated by a conservation officer and his sister disappears. Sam leaves his home and a searches for his sister with the help of his friend Bando. George's children books are the best that I have read on survival and the outdoors. I have read them several times and have shared them with many of my students. Just reading them makes me want to escape on a camping trip to the mountains.

A Have To Read!

On The Far Side Of The Mountain, is sequel to My Side Of The Mountain. It is about a boy who runs away into the wilderness to live on his own. I liked this book because it is very adventourous and surprising. You never know what will happen next! If you have read Hatchet or My side of the Mountain you will love this book! You will also like it if you like action!

Wonderful Book

I tend to like books where a teenager goes into the wilderness and has to survive on their own, so I got this book. I loved it! It was adventurous, daring, and full of drama. I recommend it to anyone who loves adventurous books!
