For our first book club, we read My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George. It just so happened that on the day we were planning to meet, our local nature center had a Winter Survival Class. Perfect timing! We went to the class and then met in the nature center for our book discussion. We ended our time together by making survival (paracord) bracelets, eating venison and berries, drinking mint tea, and sketching animals in our nature journals.
