Reviewed by Lisa M. Schlegel for Readers' Favorite
James Bastian does a wonderful job in Wisconsin Logging Camp, 1921. Historycomes alive in the personalities of the characters. The main focus is on Will,the 8-year-old Polish orphan, who chooses to live, despite having lost both hisparents. His father was killed in the war and his mother died of pneumoniaduring the voyage to America. Once Will decides to live, he is very clever inescaping being trapped in the US system as a displaced person. Instead, hefinds an older boy who has plans to meet family members. Together, they travelto Wisconsin and join those who work in the logging industry. Will grows somuch during his internship as a chickadee. The loggers aren't easy on him, yetthe reader gets a sense of both the harshness and the kindness of the times. Ienjoyed learning a little history along with the thrill of a good story. I'llrate this novel as highly recommended to those who enjoy historical storieswith positive messages.
