In 1707, eight-year-old Sarah travels with her father to build a new home in the Connecticut wilderness. Sarah is afraid when she hears animals in the night. She is afraid when she meets her Indian neighbors. She is especially afraid when she is left with an Indian family while her father goes back to get the rest of their family. But when Sarah remembers her mother’s parting words, “Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble,” she learns to be brave even when she’s afraid.
"Adorable & Timeless classic from my childhood!"
"There are no bears on Hemlock Mountain, No bears, no bears at all..." Or so young Jonathan is told by the grown-ups as he sets out alone over Hemlock Mountain. But as Jonathan discovers on that cold winter night, grown-ups don't always know...And there are bears on Hemlock Mountain!
"Kids enjoyed it."
"It was the year when Jonathan was eight that he went over Hemlock Mountain." Hemlock Mountain was really just a hill. And since he was big for his age, his mother sent him over the mountain by himself. With 20 people coming to their house for stew, Ma needed Jonathan to go over the mountain to borrow Aunt Emma's big iron pot. Jonathan was afraid of bears, but the grown-ups assured him that there were no bears on Hemlock Mountain. Besides, there was snow on the ground, and bears sleep when it's cold.
