My Side of the Mountain Author Dies at 92

Posted by Alison Hallett on Wed, May 16, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Children's book author and naturalist Jean Craighead George died today. Maybe you don't know her name, but you've probably read her books: She's best known for My Side of the Mountain and Julie of the Wolves. She was 92.

Her books are among the best children's literature has to offer—thanks to My Side of the Mountain every time I see a really big tree I still think about whether it would be a good one to live inside. Library Journal has a lengthy article about George's career.
