    This is one of my all-time favorite books. I first read it as a young man, and when I finished it I gave it to my dad. He liked it so much I didn't see it again until he died, and I noticed he'd written his name on the flyleaf. Now at 64 I'm reading it again, and will soon pass it down to my 26-yr old son.

    An unforgettable character

    Quebec Bill Bonhomme, the father of the narrator of this wonderful story, is one of the quirkiest characters I have ever come across in a book. He is the anti-Atticus Finch! Even if the rest of the story was worthless, which it most certainly isn't, he would be reason enought to read this book.

    The essence of the REAL Vermont

    This novel is more a folk story of a lost Vermont. I would say it's not 'strange' as the student from Vermont said, as much as it is a portrait of Vermont 'heroes' trying to exist in a disappearing world. Yes, there is bonding between father and son, but there is a lot more to the story. Mosher's understanding of the farming and logging way of life is described beautifully. My suggestion is read it twice. Each time you will understand it better and get more out of the story.

    STRANGE , YET I COULDNT PUT IT DOWM

    This book was the weirdest book i think ive ever read. It skips around a little but not so much that you loose your place. I find myself understanding some of the sub messages, the lose of the true wilderness and the counter evolving of the family, the best way i can decsribe this book is strange, most readers will get the theme, father and boy bonding through trying times but i think you have to be in the New England area to get the full message of this book. It is deffintly worth reading though, even if you dont live anywhere near New England, I think everyone will come away with something from this book.
