In this gripping story of a malemute puppy and a black bear cub growing up in the northern Canadian wilderness, Curwood paints a picture so clearly that readers feel they are back to that time and place. The story of Micki and Nywa was the basis of the Disney film "Nikki, Wild Dog of the North" released in 1960. Curwood's books stand on a level with Hemingway and other great authors. With their emphasis on adventure and tales of the Alaskan wild, they stand as treasures for all who never tire of adventure and life.

About the Author
James Oliver Curwood lived most of his life in Owosso, Michigan, where he was born on June 12, 1878. His first novel was "The Courage of Captain Plum" (1908) and he published one or two novels each year thereafter, until his death on August 13, 1927. Owosso residents honor his name to this day, and Curwood Castle (built in 1922) is the town's main tourist attraction. During the 1920s Curwood became one of America's best selling and most highly paid authors. This was the decade of his lasting classics "The Valley of Silent Men" (1920) and "The Flaming Forest" (1921). He and his wife Ethel were outdoors fanatics and active conservationists.
