Furious Moose of the Wilderness

Our rating: **

Gasp! A furious moose! Actually, the moose is only a side plot. The real story is about Pete Gant the trapper and Casimir Zluski’s daughter, Helen. Pete and Helen barely have time to discover that they love each other, when Pete, believing that Helen doesn’t care about him, leaves — causing Helen to wonder whether he’ll ever come back.

Don’t panic. It ends well. The moose gets shot, Pete and Helen love each other and the story ends abruptly. Again. I suppose it’s good because it leaves you with the option of continuing the story on your own. I really appreciate how Jim Kjelgaard doesn’t “humanize” animals in his books.
