Meet the Author

James Oliver Curwood, (June 12, 1878 – August 13, 1927), was an American novelist and conservationist. A great number of his works were turned into movies, several of which starred Nell Shipman as a brave and adventurous woman in the wilds of the north. Many films from Curwood's writings were made during his lifetime, as well as after his passing through to the 1950s. In 1988 French director Jean-Jacques Annaud used his 1916 novel, The Grizzly King to make the film The Bear. Annaud's success generated a renewed interest in Curwood's stories that resulted in five more films being produced in 1994 and 1995. Source Wikipedia.

    Fast paced story of back woods drama in early 1900s Canada. Jam

    Fast paced story of back woods drama in early 1900s Canada. James Oliver Curwood lived among the people he wrote about and uses many interesting characters in this and his other novels. The ARose Books publication is not a scanned copy, but a carefully edited version with enhanced original lithographs.

    Talonpaw

    I raced through the forest and found myself surrounded by flaming trees. I let out a yelp as a branch fell in front of me and threw ashes towards us. We shook them off us and went around. "Dad!!" I called. "Grandpa!!" Ivypaw yowled. I coughed as smoke surrounded us, filling my lungs. "Dad! Tornadoclaw!" I yowled. I heard a noise to our side and saw a fallen tree. There was a gray tail sticking out from underneath it. "No.." I murmured. Ivypaw and I raced over to the tree and placed out front paws on the side, ignoring the fire. We pushed on it and it rolled over, revealing my father, his gray fur singed and his back leg broken. He was breathing, but only slightly. Dad let out a cough. "Talonpaw..? Is that you?" He wheezed. I kicked his head, "Yeah." I murmured. "We should get him out of here." Ivypaw mewed. I nodded and bit into my father's scruff and heaved him away. We took him to a small patch of burned grass and lay him down. Tornadoclaw kept coughing and gasping for air. I looked over at Ivypaw who was crouching down and covering her muzzle with her paws. "Talonpaw.." The gray deputy murmured. I leaned my head closer and looked at him. "Yes father?" I asked, my voice shaking. "I need you (cough) and Ivypaw (cough) to get (cough) outta here (cough). It's not safe (cough) here." He wheezed. I shook my head, "No!" I wailed. "I can't leave yoy here! What about mother?" I sobbed. Tornadoclaw smiled weakly, "Tell Geckostar... that I love her. Tell her not to grieve, for I will always be with her." He murmured. "Now go. It doesn't look like Ivypaw will last any longer.. farewell my son. You will make a great Medicine Cat one day. Tell Geckostar I will miss her greatly... Geckostar.." He murmured. Then, Tornadoclaw's breathing ceased. My father was dead. I buried my head in his fur briefly, then turned to face Ivypaw. She was coughing and gasping for air. 'Father was right, she won't last any longer.' I thought. I coughed and picked up Ivypaw by the scruff. I threw her on my back and raced back to camp, tears streaming down my face.

    Mistypaw

    My eyes narrow at the she cat who disappeared, my violet eyes flashing a deep, blood red. "If you try and hurt my family....I will kill you," I snarl.+Mistypaw
