There is nothing Seth enjoys more than riding his horse, Quest, through the frozen wilderness of northern Minnesota. But Seth’s father, a game warden, warns that danger may be nearby. Someone is breaking the law by hunting black bear and moose for profit. While following animal tracks deep into the woods, Seth and Quest discover a moose cow and her calf. Suddenly, gunshots ring out! The calf is wounded and its mother killed. Seth and the poachers he was warned about have just come face-to-face. Now, not only are the forest’s animals in danger, but Seth and his family are as well. Mary Casanova, a Minnesota resident, crafts an exciting tale filled with authentic, vivid descriptions of the great outdoors. Johnny Heller’s gripping narration will have listeners checking over their shoulders as Seth heads deeper and deeper into a perilous situation.
Great book to listen to as we made a drive up to Alaska. Seth is a young boy who learns the value of respecting and protecting wild life. After running into two poachers who threaten his family and kill a momma moose leaving her calf stranded, he is determined to make things right.
The story teaches great family values and would make a great story for young hunters.
