Publisher's Summary

12-year-old Aidan Errolson, comes from a long line of adventurers. His grandparents were among the first settlers of Corenwald's Eastern Frontier. His father had been one of the kingdom's greatest warriors. Aidan, on the other hand, lives the quiet, comfortable life, of a nobleman's son. He never has any real adventures, and that, he believes, is the one great injustice of his otherwise happy life.

All that will change the day he first hears the bark of the bog owl, and meets Dobro Turtlebane. Dobro is one of the feechiefolk, a tribe of half-civilized swamp dwellers who fight too much, laugh too loud, cry too easily, and smell just terrible. But another meeting on that remarkable day may change Aidan's life even more profoundly. Bayard the Truthspeaker arrives with a startling pronouncement: Aidan Errolson will grow to be the Wilderking, the long-prophesied wild man, who will come out of Corenwald's forests and swamps to lead the kingdom back to its former glory. There's just one question: Is Bayard the Truthspeaker a prophet or a madman? This initial installment in The Wilderking Trilogy is sure to capture the hearts of young and old, boys and girls alike.

One of the Best Readers on Audible

Roger's voice and tone on this book is about as good as it gets for an Audiobook. Having an author read their own work is something I love, and Roger's is just so fun to listen to.

The story is enjoyable, all my kids got into it as well as my wife and I on a long road trip. Get ready for the Bark of The Bog Owl. The story is a sorta re-telling of the David and Goliath Mythic Narrative.

The story of king David with a twist

This is a great story. You can see elements of the story of king David from the Bible but, it is told from David's perspective and has added elements that make it a work of fiction. It is exciting and engaging.

We love this book!

We had a goal of listening to a chapter of this book together every night but that never happened. The kids would beg us listen to “just one more chapter.!” We have loved this story through and through!!! Thank you for such a great adventure!!!

A medieval kingdom in the 'Bama bayou?!!

A brilliant elaborative rehash of David and Goliath, with a swamp critter and massive ex... But no spoilers here. Nicely written and told. A page-turner with a plot line and wholesome thematic elements that do not rely on cheap props like foul language and "adult situations". One caution holds in that the novel depicts and celebrates a twelve-year-old boy making a rash decision to disobey.

Extremely entertaining

The Bark if the Bog Owl is the first book of Rogers Wilderking series. The entire series is FANTASTIC. Rogers has done an amazing job developing characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Roger’s performance is fun! As you listen you will belly laugh as Rogers sings, hoots and hollers in character. This is a must have in your library both in audio and print!
