My Side of the Mountain
Sam Gribley is terribly unhappy living in New York City with his family, so he runs away to the Catskill Mountains to live in the woods - all by himself. With only a penknife, a ball of cord, 40 dollars, and some flint and steel, he intends to survive on his own. Sam learns about courage, danger, and independence during his year in the wilderness, a year that changes his life forever.
On the Far Side of the Mountain
The classic story of wilderness survival continues in this action-packed sequel. Filled with authentic woodland lore and exciting adventure, On the Far Side of the Mountain takes listeners back to Sam Gribley's treehouse in the Catskill Mountains, where he begins a dangerous fight for his pet falcon's freedom.
