    2. This is a great book if you are interested in forest life. Sam Campbell spent a lot of time with his animal friends and does a great job of comparing their behaviors to how our relationship with God should be. My Mom used to read these to my brother and I on Sabbath afternoons and we always enjoyed them. I am in the process of reading his 10 book series to my kids.

    5. I read this old classic with my grandson. He was tickled by it and pulled into the lessons taught from the wildlife described. It was a book I had read many years ago and it was fun to observe the timeless nature of it.

Author Samuel Arthur (Sam) Campbell (1895-1962), known as the “philosopher of the forest,” was a naturalist, writer, lecturer, photographer, and diligent student of animals who turned his home in “the north country” into a wildlife sanctuary called Wegimind. One year, he and his two assistants, [...]

    7. This is the 1st book of The Forest Life Series, It is really cute and a good book most of the time. I kind of get tired of the philosophizing that Inky does but it is a good book. That part would probably not bother me if I had not read the book so many times.
