Reviews - What do customers think about The Wolfling: A Documentary Novel of the Eighteen-Seventies?

A great story of youth and picture of 1870's America  Aug 25, 2007
I thought the book was very readable and held me fast for the few days it took to read it (first time 1974). I have been drawn back to it numerous times over the years. Sterling North's paints a great picture of farmlife of Wisconsin (and the midwest) in the post Civil War era: McGuffey Readers; houseraisings, etc. He also brings to light a well known naturalist in his day: Thure Kumlien (whose story itself would make an interesting book). The story itself is heartwarming with charactors that you will wish you could have met.
A Home For Wolfling  Apr 8, 2001
I gave this book three stars because parts were pretty boring. It kept me reading in the beginning and the end. I think it was a good book and I recomend it to people who like animals. When the book starts out Robbie Trent(a thirteen year-old boy) learns of a wolf den and wants a whelp for a pet. When they find the wolf den Robbie climbs into it and gets the whelp he wanted. His parents let him keep it and as time progresses the wolfling grows bigger and bigger. The book ends when Robbie, Wolf, and Inga (this girl he likes) live happily ever after.
This book is the best I have read... It is GREAT!!!!!  May 30, 1999
When Robbie Trent learns of a wolf den, he wishes to have a wolf welp for his own. When one of his school mates also learns of the den he wishes to have all of the welps for bounty paid by the Wisconsin Government. When the two meet up at the den......... THE RACE IS ON!!!!!!!!!
Terrific Story!  Aug 23, 1998
A 12 year old boy wishes to have one of Old Three Toes' wolflings. When Bubs, one of his schoolmates finds the den he hopes to get the wolfling before Bubs and his father smoke out the wolves.
