Owen Foote, Frontiersman

Overview

"When the forest calls, I have to go." That's what Daniel Boone said, and Owen Foote agrees.

As wily as wolverines, as strong as badgers, and as wise ...

Overview

"When the forest calls, I have to go." That's what Daniel Boone said, and Owen Foote agrees. Wearing his coonskin cap, carrying his book about animal tracks, and armed with a jar of red pepper flakes in case he meets a bear or a mountain lion, Owen feels like a pioneer when he goes to the woods with his best friend, Joseph. But there are other kinds of varmints in the wilderness -- not bears and mountain lions, but two big kids who have nothing better to do than spoil Owen and Joseph's fun. As wily as wolverines, as strong as badgers, and as wise in the ways of the forest as any frontiersmen, Owen and Joseph set out to teach their tormentors a lesson, and learn a few new tricks themselves.

Second grader Owen Foote is looking forward to spending time with his friend Joseph in their tree fort, until some bullies visiting his neighbor, Mrs. Gold, threaten to wreck the fort.

Editorial Reviews

Horn Book
(Primary, Intermediate)
Thanks to the generosity of his neighbor Mrs. Gold, who owns the woods near Owen's house, Owen and his best friend Joseph have a great treehouse fort, complete with a Weapons Wall (seven sharp sticks) and an Art Wall (featuring the quieter Joseph's nature poem: "Bulb. Fighting dirt, worms, rodents, and rocks, to be a flower"). But now Mrs. Gold's odious grandsons Jake and Spencer have come to visit and have taken over the fort, intending to wreck it. As Owen and Joseph plot to regain their "kingdom," all the strengths of this series come to the fore: real-boy characters with an appealingly loyal friendship, a good balance of narrative and dialogue, and an honestly childlike sense of the way the world works. r.s.
