A romance of the wild. By. James oliver curwood.

A romance of the wild. Illustrations by frank b. hoffman. It is with something like a confession that I offer this second of my nature books to the public a confession, and a hope; the confession of one who for years hunted and killed before he learned that the wild offered a more thrilling sport than slaughter and the hope that what I have written may make others feel and understand that the. greatest thrill of the hunt is not in killing, but in letting live. It is true that in the great open spaces one must kill to live; one must have meat, and meat is life.

The Grizzly King James Oliver Curwood. In the chill of the night the little cub had snuggled up close between the warmth of Thor's huge forearms, and still lay there, whimpering in his babyish way as he dreamed. After a time Thor did something that he had never been guilty of before-he sniffed gently at the soft little ball between his paws, and just once his big flat red tongue touched the cub's face; and Muskwa, perhaps still dreaming of his mother, snuggled closer.

Hra
Two stories intertwined, one about two men who hunt bears in Canada, another about a bear cub whose mother dies and who meets and follows a grizzly bear who had been injured by one of the hunters. The cub is captured and then befriended by the hunters. The injured bear, a gigantic grizzly, comes across one of the men who is trapped in a cul de sac without his rifle, but then turns away leaving the man unharmed. The event changes the man's life. Later, when the hunters' dogs trap the grizzly and the man has the chance to shoot it, he shoots the lead dog instead. When the men leave, they release the cub who initially tries to follow them, and later finds the grizzly and accompanies him to his cave when winter comes. A fabulous movie called "The Bear" was made of the book by a French director. The book's preface indicates that the story is based on a true event in the life of the author, James Oliver Curwood.

I loved the movie, 'The Bear' which is an adaptation of this book. However, the book is much better than the movie. The story is fiction, but very realistic as James Curwood was very knowledgeable about the land and the bears.

Captures battle between Man v animal v environment very well

James Oliver wrote in such a way that you feel like he really gets into the minds of the people and animals he wrote about . I had to read this straight through , I just couldn't leave the bear in the sights of the hunters until I seen who wins , man or animal .

Avery well written book from the bears point of view. Inspiring because it makes you see everything through the bears eyes and mind. There is never a dull moment in this book and you will not be disappointed at anytime with this book.

This was a fantastic, heartwarming tale of the real wild. Very well written and also exciting, Curwood seems to have a great knowledge of nature and this landscape. The Bears are majestic and loveAble, and the human characters are sympathetic. A great adventure story and a classic novel!
