Newbery Winner Jean Craighead George Dies at 92

From School Library Journal: "Newbery-winning author and naturalist Jean Craighead George, who inspired many children to pursue careers in the natural sciences, died May 15 at the Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, NY from complications related to a stroke. She was 92."

We have many titles by Jean Craighead George in both Braille and audiobook!

A short sample:

My Side of the Mountain in Braille and audiobook! "Sam Gribley recounts his year of adventures and survival in the Catskill Mountains after running away from his New York City home. He makes a snug shelter in a tree trunk, eats berries and nuts, has a falcon for a hunting partner--and finds he misses human companionship. For grades 5-8. Newbery Honor. 1959." BR15070; available at the BARD site to download.

Julie of the Woods in Braille and audiobook! "Julie, a thirteen-year-old Eskimo girl, runs away rather than agree to an arranged marriage. Lost and starving on the barren tundra, she makes friends with a pack of wolves who save her life. For grades 5-8. Newbery Medal." BR8738; available at the BARD site to download.
