Recommends it for: dog lovers, bear lovers, north american wildlife lovers, maybe wolf lovers

I have read a number of Mr. Curwood's books. In this effort he paints a picture so clearly that you feel that you are back to that time and place. Truely this is a great work that is on the level of Hemmingway. A treasure for those of you out there that never get tired of adventure and life.

Reminded me of Disney's "True Life Adventures", and other Curwood's novels such as KAZAN, BAREE, or THE BEAR -- the main characters are a dog and a bear cub, and most of the novel follows their adventures.
