    Book2Dragon: These writers both have a deep love for Nature and its creatures, but do not sentimentalize either one. Both have respect for each and give a true and inviting story to all their works.

Reread recently, was somewhat disappointed. Not as good as I had remembered. ( )

I read Jim Kjelaard many years ago as a pre-teen, finding Big Red a wonderful book. I picked him up again with Snow Dog, then had to read more. I found Stormy and again was kept on the edge of my seat. In fact, I had to cheat and look at the last page, I just couldn't stand it. Once I knew the end, I could continue enjoying the book. Kjelgaard is a master writer, and I don't just mean of YA books. I mean he is one of the best writers I have read. He creates characters that hold you in the palm of their hand (man and dog alike) and then builds a tension that he does not release until nearly the last few pages. I intend to go back and read all his books, especially the sequeal to Snow Dog, named Wild Trek. If you like Jean Craighead George you will love Jim Kjelgaard. ( )

Another in the dog series by Jim Kjelgaard. I wish I could find the rest.

My Childhood collection represents books I remember reading and loving as a young boy. Some are orginal ones I owned, but, unfortunately, most are replacement copies from yard sales, flea markets, and used book stores. I am always on the lookout for a dozen or so, and I am always trying to remember and add new titles. --JJM, 10/15/05
