In 1959, Jean Craighead George published "My Side of the Mountain." This coming-of-age story about a boy and his falcon went on to win a Newbery Honor, and for the past forty years has enthralled and entertained generations of would-be Sam Gribleys. The two books that followed--"On the Far Side of the Mountain" and "Frightful's Mountain"--were equally extraordinary. Now all three books are available in one deluxe yet affordable volume for veteran devotees and brand-new fans alike.
