Item Description...
Fans of Sam Gribley and his falcon friend, Frightful, will thrill to Jean Craighead George's new book about these beloved characters. Now living in the wild, Frightful and her mate hatch three babies. The female, Oksi, "does things her own way" and, like her mother, is destined for greatness. Readers will follow her singular path from the time she breaks out of her rosy shell to her young adulthood, when Sam saves her life and they bond.

Jean George's themes--the interdependence of human and animal, respect for the wild, and the importance of nature--shine through in her storytelling. In the latest book in her best-selling wilderness series, she introduces a younger group of readers to that one mountain among thousands and the one boy, Sam, who lives there. With majestic, sweeping artwork of the sky and forest near Sam's mountain, Daniel San Souci adds his vision to the story of these noble, remarkable raptors and their human friends.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nobility Soars!  Dec 8, 2006
Fewer things are as beautiful as a falcon in flight. The illustrations in this book are nothing short of spectacular and readers will love them along with the wonderful stories of Frightful, the falcon-gentle who was introduced in the "My Side of the Mountain" series. Readers got to know Frightful and her human friend, Sam from "My Side of the Mountain," "The Other Side of the Mountain" and "Frightful's Mountain" and grew to love her as Sam did.

Frightful, once secured her independence has 3 eyas (young raptors). Two of the little falcons are stolen and it is up to Sam, the boy who bonded with Frightful early in her life to recover them. He brings the remaining bird to his home where she will be safe.

The young falcon is quite independent and not apt to heed the warnings of Frightful, who knows all too well the dangers in the world. Oksi, the young falcon-gentle has her own mind about the world as she knows it. Poaching is a real danger and Oksi refuses to stay put in her aerie (raptor's nest) with the other two birds. She is nearly captured by poachers.

Readers go on harrowing adventures with the young raptor as she lives a year as a captive; her successful return to the wild and finding a mate to build an aerie near where Sam lives. It is heartwarming that Sam has has such a way with these incredibly beautiful, majestic birds.

The illustrations will delight readers further as they glide through this delightful book on falcon's wings.
