"One of the most engaging novels you will ever read." —The Family Bookshelf
"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
"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." —Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
About the Author
Michigan-born James Oliver Curwood, author of thirty-three books, was one of the world's most popular adventure writers, often ranked in a class with Jack London and Zane Grey. Curwood's realm was the North and Northwest; his assets, a remarkable imagination and insight into animals, a love of nature, and a born storytelling gift. He was a seasoned hunter and tracker himself when he faced the open jaws of a grizzly who chose not to kill him. The encounter transformed him and became the inspiration for his novel The Bear, which was the basis for Jean-Jacques Annaud's film success.
