About the Author

James Oliver Curwood lived most of his life in Owosso, Michigan, where he was born on June 12, 1878. His first novel was "The Courage of Captain Plum" (1908) and he published one or two novels each year thereafter, until his death on August 13, 1927. Owosso residents honor his name to this day, and Curwood Castle (built in 1922) is the town's main tourist attraction. During the 1920s Curwood became one of America's best selling and most highly paid authors. This was the decade of his lasting classics "The Valley of Silent Men" (1920) and "The Flaming Forest" (1921). He and his wife Ethel were outdoors fanatics and active conservationists. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This book was the basis of the Disney film "Nikki, Wild Dog of the North" released in 1960. It's the story of a malemute puppy and a black bear cub growing up in the northern Canadian wilderness. I read this book before the movie was relased and was about twelve years old at the time. It was a magical adventure which takes you into the world of Canadian wilderness. This book, along with other Curwood adventures, is just as enjoyable as the Kjelgaard & Helmericks stories and are highly recommended for all ages.

Having just read through the works of Jack London and Zane Grey, I was surprised to find this author was on a par with both authors. When I read the first paragraph I thought, "oh no, an animal story!" I did like "Call of the Wild" but figured that was because Jack London wrote it. This story is now at #1 in my affections. A dog, a bear, and the people that happened through their lives, it can only be called "Splendid".

This is a wonderful story. For awhile, you leave the world of concrete and computers and retreat to a world of forests, friendship and adventure.

I enjoy Curwood's books about Canadian open skies stories. His novels cover a large territory of the open land and wintery conditions found in Canada. They are fast action and capable of holding your interest and make you try to read them in one setting which is impossible. Maybe worth 5 stars but I don't rate but very few books at 5 stars.
