Donn Fendler Reminds Us Of Maine Wilderness.
on December 23, 2014
I love this story. It was never written as a study of the human condition, it's the story of a boy, like 70 years ago, lost in the woods of Maine. And, it's a true story, as Donn Fendler for years visited classrooms and spoke about his experience. I was discussing the book with my siblings, and one brother, who is a history buff, and particularly, a Maine history buff, had never heard the story. That surprised me, as I thought it was a read aloud in every 3rd grade classroom in Maine.
Anyway, I have had copies of it in the past, for my classroom, but couldn't find one, so I replaced it, for my siblings to read and pass amongst them. Pretty quick read, just an hour or two, but a great story of a time gone by.
