Daniel San Souci

The saga of Frightful, the falcon made legendary in the classic "My Side of the Mountain," continues in this breathtaking picture book. Frightful has hatched three babies, one of them a female named Oksi. Oksi does things her own way, which means she is forever getting into trouble. As she grows from fuzzy hatchling to young adult, she faces the challenges of survival in the wild. But when Frightful is not there to help her, Sam Gribley is.

Readers familiar with Jean Craighead George's wilderness series will welcome back the boy who has inspired generations of young readers as he lives at one with nature, with a falcon as his companion. Sam rescues Oksi and then helps her through her first winter, forging a bond with a new generation of thriving peregrine falcons.

Jean Craighead George is today's most revered nature writer for children. In this latest book in her best-selling series about Frightful, she introduces a younger group of readers to that one mountain among thousands and the boy - Sam - who lives there. With majestic, sweeping artwork of the sky and the forest near Sam's mountain home, Daniel San Souci adds his vision to the story of these noble, remarkable raptors and their human friends.
