Kazan

James Oliver Curwood

Book Overview: 

Probably the most widely read of his novels during his lifetime was this engrossing tale of a magnificent animal that is part husky and part wolf. There is a struggle between the two breeds in Kazan’s makeup; he is torn between love for a particular man and woman and the desire to run free with the wolves, especially the one that he has chosen for his mate. In both of these contrasting parts of his life, he meets tremendous challenges that require all his instinct, strength, and spirit to overcome.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .pond to his call when he howled into the sky.

He was hurt. And Gray Wolf was hurt, but not so badly as Kazan. He was torn and bleeding. One of his legs was terribly bitten. After a time he saw a fire in the edge of the forest. The old call was strong upon him. He wanted to crawl in to it, and feel the girl's hand on his head, as he had felt that other hand in the world beyond the ridge. He would have gone—and would have urged Gray Wolf to go with him—but the man was there. He whined, and Gray Wolf thrust her warm muzzle against his neck. Something told them both that they were outcasts, that the plains, and the moon, and the stars were against them now, and they slunk into the shelter and the gloom of the forest.

Kazan could not go far. He could still smell the camp when he lay down. Gray Wolf snuggled close to him. Gently she soothed with her soft tongue Kazan's bleeding wounds. And Kazan, lifting his head, whined softly to the stars.

An interesting story. It was a good read, but it lacks something to make it great.

Follows the adventures of husky-wolf mix Kazan. He meets kind people who show him love, and people who beat him with a club. He faces the harshness and cruelty of wilderness, and misses the warmth and safety of cabins. He battles with lynxes, beavers, porcupines and ermines. Quite an entertaining...more

Un libro con una narración increíble!!!

Obviamente recuerda mucho a Colmillo Blanco.
A todo aquél que le guste la naturaleza y quiera a los animales, le encantará este libro.
Eso sí, matizar que este libro está escrito a principios del siglo XX, y que las emociones de los animales están humanizadas. Quizás eso en este caso lo haga aún má...more

Nice

This isn't exactly naturalist lit, but it is heavy into nature. It's the adventure story of a wolf mix and his life among men and in the wild. Kind of a 'Call of the Wild' but with more description and about equal amount of drama.
And dang, but every man resorts to the whip. Doesn't look good for...more

For fans of Jack London

Although definitely derivative of Jack London's wild dog books, Call of the Wild and White Fang, this is an excellent novel. The writing is consistently strong without resorting to archaic and/or complicated language and Curwood achieves a level of personification and patho...more

This was such an adorable book. <3 I love reading books from an animal's perspective and this one was no different to the other awesome ones I've read. I thought it was also cool that this story is 97 years old but it is still so amazing and I was hooked right through.
