Publisher's Summary

Frightful, the peregrine falcon who first appeared in My Side of the Mountain, is back. Her amazing journey through life continues in the face of many rousing wildlife adventures. Will she survive the wilderness, even though she was raised by a human? When an old friend rescues her from captors, Frightful soars into the unfamiliar woodlands and searches for home. Before finding her mountain, she adopts a nest of motherless peregrine chicks. But construction crews, bird poachers, and even a bald eagle threaten her new family. Frightful needs help from Sam Gribley, the human who raised her. Kids and parents alike will be captivated by this action-packed continuation of Sam and Frightful’s journey.
Acclaimed author Jean Craighead George has won a Newbery Medal. With Jeff Woodman's splendid rendition, you feel the wind blow through your hair as Frightful glides above the hemlock trees.

A Welcome Return to Frightful

Frightful's Mountain is a satisfying end to this trilogy that I enjoyed so much more than the second book in the series (On the Far Side of the Mountain), mainly because it's a welcome return to the writing style of the first book (My Side of the Mountain), with the engaging addition that much of it is from Frightful's viewpoint. Yes, it's an anthropomorphized view, but it still makes for a gratifying and rewarding read. I also had the added benefit of learning that peregrine falcon chicks are called eyases and a male peregrine falcon is called a tiercel!

Review from my 4 and 7 year old kids

She has a baby named Oaksie. There are falcon thieves in it. I love it! It's so cool! There is a series of three books.
