5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories, March 1, 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Three Dogs, Two Mules, and a Reindeer (Paperback)
Set in various parts of Alaska, young readers who were drawn in by love of dogs, reindeer or mules will leave the book with more than just animal stories, they will have learned a little bit of Alaskan history and have a vivid picture of the kinds of people who have lived and adventured there. It is a good read-aloud book, and the pictures add to the stories. I wish all history could be presented with true stories such as these that catch the flavor of the time and place better than any list of dates and political events could ever do.

5.0 out of 5 stars A choice and very highly recommended read for children's nonfiction collections, February 23, 2010
This review is from: Three Dogs, Two Mules, and a Reindeer (Paperback)
In the harsh winter north, man must rely on beast to get by. "Three Dogs, Two Mules, and a Reindeer: True Animal Adventures on the Alaskan Frontier" is a story of men and their animal companions who helped them get by. With both beautiful art and historical photos, author Marjorie Cochrane and illustrator Jon Van Zyle give readers and animal lovers quite the picture of the cooperation of man and animal. "Three Dogs, Two Mules, and a Reindeer" is a choice and very highly recommended read for children's nonfiction collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Art and artistry in a childrens book!, July 6, 2014

This review is from: Three Dogs, Two Mules, and a Reindeer (Paperback)
An excellent book!

Many may be attracted to the art (and John Van Zyle is excellent), but the stories hold up to every brush stroke you see. Marjorie Cochrane has brought the mix of animals and area together for an wonderful set of stories that are so descriptive of Alaskan life.

Written as a childrens book, it holds up well for all ages. the artistry will attract the eyes and the stories will remain in the memories!
