Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
These engrossing wildlife novels (the former, the basis for the popular film) mark the launch of this publisher's new imprint for middle readers. Ages 8-up. (June)
Children's Literature - Mary Clayton Rowen
This is the story of an orphaned bear, Muskwa, and a huge adult male grizzly, Thor, as they form a bond and flee the guns and dogs of hunters in the Canadian wilderness. Suspenseful and highly emotional, the climax is based on the author's actual experience and is a heart-stopper. Curwood's stirring wilderness tale is the work of an ardent American conservationist and adventure writer of more than 30 books. It was a choice selection for Reader's Digest, the Scholastic Book Club, the Boys Club of America and the National Wildlife Federation.

Meet the Author

Michigan-born James Oliver Curwood, author of thirty-three books, was one of the world's most popular adventure writers, often ranked in a class with Jack London and Zane Grey. Curwood's realm was the North and Northwest; his assets, a remarkable imagination and insight into animals, a love of nature, and a born storytelling gift. He was a seasoned hunter and tracker himself when he faced the open jaws of a grizzly who chose not to kill him. The encounter transformed him and became the inspiration for his novel The Bear, which was the basis for Jean-Jacques Annaud's film success.
