Details (if other): Cancel. While the occurrences chronicled in this book may have been interesting in isolation, Valens ties them together in an altogether boring way. Details frequently seemed misplaced, and repeated facts that often felt luke foreshadowing generally led nowhere. I did not care for the chronological method used to recount this personal history.

This second book concentrates instead on detailing Kinmont’s everyday life and is very honest in describing her personal relationships with members of her family, as well as prospective husband John Boothe, her friends, and the Hollywood acquaintances who wrote, directed, and starred in the two film versions of her life. School ended shortly thereafter, and they returned to Bishop, California, the site of the Rocking K Ranch, where much of the action of the first book took place.

Mostly, though, the inspiration one detects in The Other Side of the Mountain is the inspiration to make the kind of prefabricated romantic movie that every few years turns the American public into a bunch of blubbering idiots.

Reviews about Other Side of the Mountain (7):
I feel bad that Jill Kinmont (or ANYONE for that matter) could end up flat on their backs (so to speak) and paralyzed for life just from participating in a sport or doing something else they love. I know that it can be a abrupt, dramatic (and traumatic!) change in one's life when they're a fun-loving, independent, energetic person for one minute, and then suddenly something happens to them to cause a future lifetime of feeling totally helpless and dependent upon everyone for everything. I KNOW that it can't be any more easier for THEM than it is on the one(s) providing 24-hour care! THAT IS SUCH A PAINFUL, TRAGIC PHYSICAL LOSS!
But the amazing thing about this story is Jill eventually came to terms with her new situation, and did the best she could to do some rehabilitation exercises and overcome her physical obstacles. Yeah, she cried a little; she was certainly missing her professional skiing heyday--there was a portion or two in the story where Jill had recurring dreams that she was normal, healthy, and happy, skiing down a steep, powdery white ski slope; afterwards she removes her skis, and next thing, she's sitting down in a wheelchair. What a sad dream! The doctors found that she could partially move her arms, so they worked with that, thus SOMEWHAT improving her life.

But Jill Kinmont was a VERY smart, intelligent young woman; she figured out what alternative she wanted in her life and discovered an underlying love for teaching! She was an educator who taught young immigrant Indian tribal school students.
You GOT to admire that kind of strong determination in a person.
I myself am disabled, and Jill Kinmont is, was, and always will be a big role model for me. Every door that was closed in her face, she drove her chair right through. Nothing could stop her. When I feel sorry for myself, I think of her, and keep going forward.
One of the richest most beautiful stories I've ever seen to this day ! Saw it as a teenager in the 70's an as an adult still a very moving story. Rest in peace Jill Kilmont...
One of the best, most inspiring books I've ever read. I read it first as a teenager and after a ski trip to Alta, felt prompted to buy a copy. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Great book!
The book was said to be in better condition than I feel it is. The story is still a great story but I was disappointed that the book is considerably more worn than indicated since I'm giving it to my mom
this was an awesome but sad movie
Even though its dated, a very inspiring story. Loved it as a kid too...
