Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A timeless tale…Curwood captures the simplicity and beauty of nature without becoming sentimental.” Booklist
“Cliffhanging adventures abound for Baree through the course of the story, and Curwood’s natural storytelling abilities coupled with his knowledge of the wilderness makes them realistic and believable. This is an exciting, colorful tale that…ranks with the work of Jack London.” VOYA
“Baree’s dramatic coming of age entails such key moments as letting out his first wolf howl; realizing that there are creatures more powerful than he in the wild; and having a pack of wolves turn on him…A sensitively written novel—about life in the wild and especially about how animals may perceive experiences—that’s bound to find fans.” Kirkus Reviews
“One of the most engaging novels you will ever read.” Family Bookshelf

Author Bio: James Oliver Curwood

James Oliver Curwood (1878–1927) was born in Owosso, Michigan, where he lived for most of his life. He studied journalism at the University of Michigan, and in 1900 he left the university and married Cora Leon Johnson. This was also the year he sold his first story, “Across the Range,” for five dollars. He went to work for the Detroit News-Tribune covering funerals and for a pharmaceutical company until he was able to support himself through his writing. In 1909 Curwood divorced Cora and married Ethel Greenwood. That was also the year he took his first trip into the Canadian Northwest and thereafter would spend up to six months each year in the arctic wilderness. This was where he set some of his most successful books. Over his lifetime, Curwood wrote over thirty books. Among them were The Grizzly King, The Wolf Hunters, The Alaskan, The Country Beyond, and Son of the Forests.
