Review quote

"A timeless tale...Curwood captures the simplicity and beauty of nature without becoming sentimental. " --"ALA Booklist"

"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 James Oliver Curwood

James Oliver Curwood (1878-1927) was one of America's most popular wilderness adventure writers and an early conservationist, fighting for ecology long before it became the popular movement of today. He wrote thirty-three books, including "The Grizzly King," the 1916 novel on which the 1989 film "The Bear" is based, and which has been reissued by Newmarket Press under the title "The Bear: A Novel."
