Overview

Baree was the son of a grey wolf and a black dog, born in the vast Canadian wilderness. He learns about nature and his fellow animals by trial and error - fighting with owls and playing with beavers. Being alone in the wild, he desperately seeks to join a pack of wolves, but they see him as a dog, and he is driven away.
The wolves were treacherous, but Baree soon learns that humans can be much worse. He is shot, beaten, and trapped, and soon learns to take care of himself. After fighting alone against the world, he befriends an Indian maiden, Nepeese and he finds his purpose in life.
Baree: The Wolf-Dog is one of James Oliver Curwood's most cherished works.

Author Details

Curwood, James Oliver

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.
