Présentation de l'éditeur

"Should appeal to all rugged individualists who dream of escape to the forest."The New York Times Book Review

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, forty 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.

 “An extraordinary book . . . It will be read year after year.”
The Horn Book

Biographie de l'auteur

"I write for children. Children are still in love with the wonders of nature, and I am too. So I tell them stories about a boy and a falcon, a girl and an elegant wolf pack, about owls, weasels, foxes, prairie dogs, the alpine tundra, the tropical rain forest. And when the telling is done, I hope they will want to protect all the beautiful creatures and places."

Jean Craighead George (1919–2012) was the author of more than 100 beloved books for young people, including the Newbery Award–winning Julie of the Wolves , the Newbery Honor–winning My Side of the Mountain, On the Far Side of the Mountain, and Frightful's Mountain .  She was a lifetime naturalist and a household name.

Tous les enfants ont au moins un jour rêvé de s'enfuir et d'aller vivre seul à la montagne. De survire dans la nature, dans les bois voisins, en pêchant, en buvant l'eau de la rivière, en cueillant des fruits. Ce livre est pour eux, il conte la magnifique histoire d'un jeune homme qui part vivre dans la montagne, se fait une maison dans un arbre, des vêtements en peau de cerf, devient ami avec un raton laveur, chasse à l'aide de son faucon qu'il est aller recueillir dans un nid et échappe à la civilisation. Il vit dans l'harmonie et la tranquillité. Tout ceci dans un anglais simple et parsemé des schémas explicatifs qui rythment l'aventure.
A lire absolument, en vous rappelant vos rêves d'enfants...

Great adventure that stays with you. 1 mars 2002
Par Kerry Sullivan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
OK, I'm 42, and here's my book report.
I read this book the first time back in about 1968. I can still remember dreaming about holing up in a tree house on a mountain somewhere while a great blizzard decends, the wind howling through the tree limbs. And surviving off the wilderness, trapping deer and fishing, hiding out from grownups. It was a tremendous adventure that has stayed with me through the years.
I recently bought this book for my 8-year old boy, but he's still pouring through the Harry Potter series (again), so I re-read it. It's still tremendous after all these years--the adventure every boy dreams of. It's a story of total independence and making it on your own, and the hero is as brave and resourcefull as I dreamed I would be if it were me on that mountain. The book is as entertaining today as it was back then. I know my boy will love it. It's magic without witchcraft.

My book report 26 avril 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am 10 years old and have just read this book for my monthlybook report. I am a big fan of this book, My Side Of The Mountain. Theauthor of this book is Jean Craighead George. The main characters ofthe book are Sam Gribley, Frightful , and The Baron Weasel. Sam Gribley is a boy 15 years old who ran away from home to live on the Catskill Mountains. He ran away from home because there were11 poeple in his family, 4 brothers, 4 sisters and 2 adults plus Sam. Frightful is Sam's falcon, he took her from her nest when she was a baby and raised her. He also had a friend named The Baron Weasel who he caught in his trap.
My favorite chapter in the book is when Sam found Frightful a falcon so that he wouldn't get lonely. My second favorite chapter is When The City Comes To Me. And it is when his family comes to visit Sam. His Mom wants him to live in the barn until he is 16 but he doesn't want to.
The chapter that I liked the least was I Cooperate With The Ending. I found this chapter to be sad because I was really interested in the book and I didn't want it to end.
When my Aunt was in grade school she recommended this book to my Dad who was also in grade school. My Dad recommened this book to me and gave it to me for Christmas. When my brother is old enough I will recommended this book to him. The reason why I would recommended it to my brother or anyone is because it is a good book, full of adventure and excitement and I really enjoyed it. This book made me feel like I was in the story as one of the characters.

Summit of a Mountain 25 février 2004
Par Zinta Aistars - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Dare I admit how many years ago I was but a girl, nose buried in this book? Decades, oh, decades ago. Yet even now it stands out as one of the beacon lights of my childhood, leading me to an adulthood that focuses around a love of wilderness.
When young Sam ran away from home (and this is something I routinely did as a girl, tying red bandana to a stick containing crackers, kitchen knife, and toothbrush, and rather long to do again, now as I spend too many of my days in an office) and headed into the Catskill Mountains, my heart went with him. No dream house could match the home he created inside the hollow of a big tree. No gourmet dinner could match the wilderness fare Sam put together, smacking his lips. No pet could match that fine falcon.
Jean Craighead George was then, and is now, at the top of the list of my favorite authors in children's and young adult literature. My own children are grown now, but as they grew, I read George's books to them, giving them not only a taste of fine writing, but also an education in science and wilderness survival, along with a healthy respect for environmental issues. George may write fiction, but her stories are all based on sound scientific data. How Sam survived on the mountain is based on good science. That he uses determination, intelligence, and discipline in living this way is good character. And that's something our kids don't see or read about nearly often enough today.
Highly recommended.

One of the best books I've Read This Year 18 avril 2002
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book, My Side of the Mountain, by Jean Craighead George is a great book. The main character, Sam Gribley, runs away from his New York City apartment one day to seek a new and independent life. Sam chooses to live in the Catskill Mountain because his Grandfather once owned a farm there. While Sam is there, he meets many friends. Some of his new friends are people, and some are animals. Sam's best friend and helper is a falcon he calls Frightful. Sam also shows lots of courage and tolerance in this book. Sam was very courageous during the blizzard that hit the mountain. Sam shows tolerance because he eats things he's never eaten before such as rabbit, crayfish, and vension. This is a great book and anyone who likes adventure should read it.

A Must Read! 4 juin 2002
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Sam Gribly is sick of New York with all his little brothers and sisters running around, so he decides to run away into the Catskill Mountains. He brings [price], some string/cord, an ax, some flint and steel and a penknife. He has to find/catch his own meals. These are a few of the meals he had: venison (deer), turtle soup, smoked rabbit and dried apples. He decides that finding food is a hard task and wishes he could have help with hunting, so he sets off to find the best kind of hunter that he can think of (that is tame-able) a duck-hawk. He finds a baby duck-hawk, trains it to his arm and teaches it how to hunt.
He meets a man he calls Bando, and they become friends. Sam has many adventures, and meets many animals and people such as a weasel, he calls "the Baron weasel."
My favorite character was the Baron Weasel because he was unpredictable. An example of this is when he came up to Sam and bit him.
I would recommend this book because it is fun and adventurous. An example of how it was fun is when Sam met a music teacher named Aaron, who was out hiking. Sam started singing some pretty weird songs to Aaron, such as "The Cold Water" song and the "Hi-Chickadee" song. It was adventurous when Sam took a baby duck-hawk and trained it. I think it took courage and bravery to go live in the wilderness alone, without the comforts of home.
