About 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.

This is one of those novels that wouldn´t let you sleep until you finish it. Kazan is a piece of art, one of the best books I have ever read. Curwood has the ability to transport you and feel that you are next to Kazan, or even that you are Kazan! You will feel the whips and the love on the first chapters, the starvation, the fights to enter in the wolfs´ hound, the love toward Gray Wolf, the hurts made by the lynx, the fire, the recapture and finally, the freedom. If you are an animals and adventures fan, it´s sure that you will love this novel.

I read this book as a young child. (I am 41 yrs now) My parents had several 'big/little' books as they were called back then. Kazan was among them. I was captivated by the story the first time and read it again at 12 yrs old. I enjoyed it so much that in my 20's, I made certain I special ordered it for my collection before it went out of print. It is an excellent adventure set in the rugged North. Curwood has a gift for weaving a story. If your family and friends network have animal lovers among them, this is a wonderful read. If they don't read much, read it out loud to them. Reading is a great way to enjoy time together and share. Surprisingly, it is much more fun than watching TV together. :)

This book was the best animal book I have ever read. The way that Mr. Curwood describes the movements the characters make, the passion in it, made it better then any other book. Gray Wolf shows how using her other senses besides eyesight is better. The companionship between Kazan and Gray Wolf made it the best book I have ever read. So like the review before mine......I couldn't put it down until I read the whole book!!!!!
