My Side of the Mountain Study Guide


My Side of the Mountain

by Jean Craighead George

This is an account of Sam's adventures as he lives alone on his grandfather's mountain for a year. Sam lives in the trunk of a tree, catches and trains a falcon, and makes his own clothing.

Barbara's Notes: Boys and girls alike enjoy this story. The book is much better than the movie. This is a good choice for students who have finished the lower level guides or 5th graders new to TLP. (Grades 4, 5, 6)
