Publisher's Summary

Baree was the son of a grey wolf and a black dog, born in the vast Canadian wilderness. He learns about nature and his fellow animals by trial and error; fighting with owls and playing with beavers. Being alone in the wild, he desperately seeks to join a pack of wolves, but they see him as a dog, and he is driven away. The wolves were treacherous, but Baree soon learns that humans can be much worse. He is shot, beaten, and trapped, and soon learns to take care of himself. After fighting alone against the world, he befriends an Indian maiden, Nepeese, and he finds his purpose in life. Baree: The Wolf-Dog is one of James Oliver Curwood's most cherished works.

Audible Editor Reviews

The orphan Baree belongs to no world. The wolf packs see him as a dog while the humans see him as a wolf, and both groups treat him mercilessly. When Baree meets a little human girl, though, he finds his home with her. In the tradition of Jack London, James Oliver Curwood penned great adventure tales about the animals he knew well as a tracker. Patrick Lawlor gives an excited performance, utilizing fun accents and snarling voices. Lawlor balances compassion and action sequences, so that the listener feels both empathy for Baree's plight and hooked on every word.
