Nicknamed the philosopher of the forest, Sam Campbell was a writer, photographer, radio personality, promoter, lecturer and especially a devoted student of living nature. His summer home, which he titled the Sanctuary of Wegimind, was a game preserve in the forests of northern Wisconsin, near the town of Three Lakes. There he studied, mainly in the summertime, the ways of wild animals, "their habits, their work, their play, and the examples they set for human beings in right living."
The mysterious wilderness has always held an attraction for boys and girls of all ages, and what a wilderness is to be found in Sam Campbell’s Moose Country! Hi-Bub, a young, inquisitive boy, joins the Campbells for a journey to Sanctuary Lake in Canada’s North Country, where a wonderful world of animals and adventure awaits. The author’s talent for descriptive writing makes every page blossom with the sights, sounds, and scents of God’s marvelous creation. Take this wilderness walk and discover with Hi-Bub the intrigue of animal (and sometimes human) behavior. Paperback, 235 pages.
