On my last trip to the Catskills I put together a slide show of images of what the mountains look like. The intent of this slide show is to open up discussion with students about the setting of the novel My Side of the Mountain. The pictures will help give students a chance to visualize what the setting of the novel would look like. The slide show encompasses both pictures of the wilderness as well as some shots of the towns that make up the Catskills region.
