Sequel. Sam Gribley's younger sister is living on the mountain with him and has all sorts of ideas for inventions to make life easier, primarily using water power. A conservation warden confiscates Frightful and Sam needs to learn a new way to provide enough meat for the two of them. And adventure ensues, which at times becomes a bit too educational as we learn about birds of prey and the people who covet them.
My son greatly enjoyed this. ( )

I really liked My Side of the Mountain, but this book did not capture my attention as well. There was too much repetition in the dialogue and actions of Sam and Bando, and Alice (Sam's sister) became a very annoying character to me. Overall, not a horrible sequel, but not that great in my opinion. ( )

To Twig George Pittenger, my inspiration for this story.
First words
This June morning is hot and humid with a haze so dense I can barely see the huge hemlock tree in which I live.
