Reviews - What do customers think about Mountain Born?

Great read!  Jan 6, 2007
My 8- and 10-year-old children and I LOVED this book. I read it aloud, and we all enjoyed the story -- so much so that we decided to extend our learning to some research of sheep, raising sheep, and sheep farming. I highly recommend this book!
A Great Story!  Oct 15, 2005
I read this book to my son. It started out a little slow; I wasn't sure he would enjoy it as much as some others we've read. But we really enjoyed it, probably more than many of those others. As I was wrapping it up, he asked about a sequel, which always means he REALLY loved the book. There is one called *A Place for Peter* that is also worth reading. It is such a sweet story. Definitely worth reading.
Sticky sweet!  Sep 24, 2004
Ultra-sentimental tale of farm life. The author swings between complete unreality (the sheep Biddy is given very unsheeplike qualities, maybe she should have been named "Lassie"?) and passages of very well-written & realistic observation (the lambs-at-play passages are excellent & spot-on.)

If you don't know anything about farm animals you may enjoy this story; if you are a farmer(particularily a sheep farmer) you will say "Hold on a minute!" numerous times.

The illustrations are lovely; a redeeming feature.

To recap: rather cloyingly sweet & a tear-jerker to boot. Don't quote any of the sheep or wolf "facts", this is definitely a fictional tale.

Really enjoyable!  Sep 3, 2001
Hi, I just discovered this book for my kids, .... It is a serene, relaxing book, just the thing to read aloud on a blustery winter evening.
The language is evocative, the characters warm and real. Read it- you won't regret it!
Words of Wisdom  Feb 3, 2000
Although written for children, there are many words of wisdom in this lovely book. One of my favorites is: "A man must have a care to what he puts in his mind, for when he's alone on a hillside and draws it out he'll want treasures to be his company, not regrets."

Yates uses rich language and imagery in her writing that vividly remind one of the simple things in life. "She snapped out a man's shirt...fastening it with pins to the line."

This book treats, with sensitivity, the loss of one's beloved pet. It portrays strong family values and work ethic from a simpler time.
