Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Squeamish readers may have trouble getting past this debut novel's first chapter, which describes in gruesome detail the hero's shooting of a rabbit and then his severing of its foot. When 12-year-old Seth later witnesses two men poaching a cow moose, he is warned by the law-breakers to say nothing to his game-warden stepfather. Though the boy thinks he wants the grown-up thrill of hunting, the rabbit and moose episodes lead him to question his desire. In fact Seth is unusually sensitive to animals-he is gentle with his horse and his cat-and vows to save the poached moose's injured orphan calf. The boy's attempts to rescue the animal and stop the poachers are paralleled by his concerns about the baby his mother is about to have and questions about his biological father, whom he's never met. Casanova earnestly conveys the ugliness of killing animals for financial gain, but significant portions of the novel including a melodramatic ending resemble TV adventures, and the themes of sibling anxiety and approaching teen years are approached in merely routine fashion. Ages 9-12. May
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6The novel begins with Seth, 12, illegally shooting a rabbit near his home in a wilderness area in northern Minnesota. His feelings of guilt over the incident are complicated by the fact that his stepfather is the local game warden. Things become even more complicated when Seth sees some poachers killing a cow moose and wounding her calf. They follow Seth to his barn and rough him up. Undeterred, the boy finds their hideout, orchestrates their capture, and, with the help of the warden, rescues the moose calf. At the story's end, Seth has confessed to the killing of the rabbit and grown closer to his stepfather. This is a fast-paced adventure story, frequently helped along by Casanova's precise and evocative descriptions. Seth is a winning character and readers are given a chance to get to know him and his inner conflicts while enjoying the adventurous plot. Many young readers are also likely to be intrigued by his isolated life on the fringe of a wilderness area.Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL
From the Publisher

"A quick-moving adventure that, without preachiness, shows the importance of knowledgeable gun use and respect for wildlife." —Kirkus Reviews

"Casanova’s description of the frigid, northern Minnesota landscape is so chillingly vivid a cup of hot chocolate may be in order." —Booklist

"A fast-paced adventure story, frequently helped along by Casanova’s precise and evocative descriptions. Seth is a winning character." —School Library Journal

    Best book I've ever read!

    From the very first page I couldn't put this book down. I love hunting stories and anything to do with nature. I want to read more of Mary Casinova's books.

    READ THIS ONE NOT MY LAST ONE

    Moose Tracks is a suspense filled novel that kept my attention very easily. The author, Mary Casanova, describes the characters in great detail. She also does an excellent job of describing the scene. The reader feels like they are a part of everything that is happening. Moose Tracks is a book that a variety of ages can read and enjoy. I encourage you to read it as soon as possible. If you¿re like me, you will enjoy reading Moose Tracks over and over again. I like everything about this book I didn¿t dislike any part.
