Book Excerpt: 
. . .ipping juice filled the nostrils with an appetizing odor. By the time Wabi had applied Mukoki's prescription to his comrade's wounds, and had done them up in bandages, the tempting feast was spread before them.

As a liberal section of the ribs was placed before him, together with corn-meal cakes and a cup of steaming coffee, Rod could not suppress a happy though somewhat embarrassed laugh.

"I'm ashamed of myself, Wabi," he said. "Here I've been causing so much bother, like some helpless kid; and now I find I haven't even the excuse of a broken arm, and that I'm as hungry as a bear! Looks pretty yellow, doesn't it? Just as though I was scared to death! So help me, I almost wish my arm was broken!"

Mukoki had buried his teeth in a huge chunk of fat rib, but he lowered it with a great chuckling grunt, half of his face smeared with the first results of his feast.

"Whole lot sick," he explained. "Be sick s. . . Read More

Fun 1920s action adventure. A little Jack London. A little Edgar Rice Burroughs. Race interesting. Racist yes. Expected. Colonialism

Although full of hunting and killing, this book has a such a nice vibe. Decriptions of nature and adventures are stunning and the friendships are beautiful. Warmly recommended.

James Oliver Curwoodin "Sudenpyytäjät" (WSOY, 1957) on oleellinen osa lapsuuttani. Lieneekö kirja ollut isäni vai jonkun hänen sisaruksistaan, mutta mummolan vintiltä sen joka tapauksessa aikanaan löysin ja ihastuin ikihyviksi jännittävään nuorten seikkailuromaaniin.

Zagrebačka stvarnost
Zagreb, 2013.
Prevela Ana Levak
O ovom romanu jezično se može reći da je žanrovski ukalupljen i ograničen. Neaktualizirani, nemaštoviti, neumjetnički jezik. Na razini dijaloga iz Zagora.
Sadržajno se radi o vesternu pa je i u tom smislu spona sa Zagorom. Inače, meni su Zagor i Ch...more

Una novela de aventuras de James Oliver Curwood, a quien conocí gracias a Kazán (y a mi padre, que me regaló las obras completas). En las grandes planicies nevadas del norte de Canadá, un joven cazador de lobos se enfrenta a mil y una aventuras. Sería una del oeste salvo por el gran papel que rep...more

I enjoy just about anything James Oliver Curwood writes. The book is dated and would give PETA a heart attack for gun violence, and the hunting and trapping of animals. It was written in 1908 I believe , a different time and place.

This book should be much better known. Is it because it's by a Canadian author, about adventure in the Canadian wilderness, that it is so obscure? (At least to me.) This belongs alongside Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, and Treasure Island for adventures appealing to an audience of young men/boys.

Great Adventure Story

Despite its brevity, this book is an epic adventure of the wild. The plot is a bit scattered and much is left open-ended (although the sequel "The Gold Hunters" picks up moments after this story ends), but the description of the landscape is vivid and the characters are sympa...more

It takes place in Canada in the early 1900's. The story of an American boy who has become friends with a Native American boy. He travels to Canada to hunt and trap with his friend in hopes that he can earn money to help his mother. The boys and an Indian guide spend several months in a remote cab...more

I nearly stopped the book in the beginning not wanting to read about guys killing wolves. I'm glad I didnt. It was a story about 2 school mates that go out to trap wolves for their skins during a school break. It takes place in 1908. It describes in vivid detail the cold conditions of their trip....more
