He claims that he is snug and safe. When the entry ends, a slightly older Sam explains that before that blizzard arrived he worked for months building his house in the tree, learning to make fires, collecting stores of food, and so on. When winter arrived he had plenty of supplies, but he was still scared. Luckily he stayed safe and warm through the storm.
If you are interested in falconry at all, you would LOVE this book! Very informative and dramatic, as Frightful learns to survive in the wild, struggles to find a mate and raise her own chicks, and finds her way back to Sam as a wild bird.
The things I loved about the first two books aren't in this book though. I loved Sam's survival story, how he bui This is my least favorite book in the trilogy, because it mainly focuses on the peregrine falcon, Frightful, and Sam is barely in the story at all.
I loved Sam's survival story, how he built his house, found his food, and built his furniture and made his own clothes. I like the ingenious ideas, like solving a puzzle and coming up with interesting and unique answers to the problem of surviving on your own in the wild.
But NONE of that is in this book! So I was disappointed that it wasn't like the first books. The whole focus is Frightful and her life as a peregrine falcon in the wild.
She migrates, fights off poachers, nearly starves in the winter, learns how to mate and raise chicks, and has some great adventures around the Catskill mountains. I just don't really care that much about birds. Wonderful writing, of course, and I still enjoyed reading it.
Just not my favorite. It is written from the falcon's perspective for the most part. The only issue I have with this book is that there are a few mentions of cellular phones and because the first book was written in the timeline doesn't always add up.
There would have to be at least a 30 year jump and that wouldn't work!
Fortunately, there isn't that much mention of the cell phones and you can mostly put it out of your mind! I really, really like how the author speaks about DDT and other pes I enjoyed this book.
I really, really like how the author speaks about DDT and other pesticides. It is an ugly truth and people need to know that what they use can affect many other things!
There are just so many things in this book meant to educate people on things that happen to animals and our environment. This book highlights them in an entertaining way!
So, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. Because of the factual information it would be interesting to read with children and have a discussion.
Just remember that this is the third book in the trilogy. You really should read the first two books first. There are many references to the first two books in it.Get an answer for 'Is Sam from Jean Craighead George's My Side of the Mountain static or dynamic?
