Very well, thank you The people are alive much than I d remembered for the most part and I m enjoying the observation and learning from experience that the boys do.

I was given a copy of this book when I was 10 and read it repeatedly It has a wealth of information about the North American natives as seen through eyes of boys who were a fascinated as I in Indian culture and lore.
I was so happy to find this book in print It was a favorite of mine when I was a child I got it out of the library several times It is full of backwoods lore and rough camping instruction presented in story form Who knew that you don t want to burn elm in a cookfire inside your tee pee because it throws lots of sparks Has instructions for building the tee pee, too I loved re reading it as an adult but it is probably targeted to late elementary school aged and middle school aged children.
Like most of the reviewers, I grew up with this book and count it as one of my all time favorites I just purchased 2 copies of the illustrated paperback Cornell University editionTwo Little Savagesfor my two infant grandsons, and the hardcover IndyPublish edition for myself The paperback is a good reproduction of the original, with all of the illustrations that give E T Seton s works much of their charm The cover and binding leave a bit to be desired I doubt it will hold up to the sustained use the book often experiences, but is well worth the 26 price.
Do NOT buy the hardcover edition from IndyPublishTwo Little Savages It is totally devoid of the illustrations that again provide Seton s works with much of their value and charm As such it is definitely NOT worth the 45.
99 price, no matter how well printed or bound I ve returned it, and will now search for a good used original edition.
Loved this book as a kid Got this copy for my nephew who just moved to the woods of Maine.
good book A memory of my childhood Super for lovers of God s creation.
