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.Show more
Hai Li Bu lives in a small Chinese village. Even though he is a good hunter, there is a drought, and he can no longer find enough food to feed the village. One day, while hunting deep in the forest, Hai Li Bu rescues the Dragon King of the Sea's daughter. As a reward, Hai Li Bu is given the ability to understand the speech of animals. There is one condition-if Hai Li Bu tells anyone about his gift he will turn to stone. Soon Hai Li Bu is able to feed everyone again. Then the animals tell him a huge storm is coming that will destroy the village. When he tries to warn everyone they refuse to believe him unless he tells them how he knows. Now, Hai Li Bu must decide whether to save himself or his village. Mary Casanova's adaptation of this Chinese folktale, combined with Richard Poe's subtle yet powerful narration brings to life a story listeners won't soon forget.Show more
In the forests of Minnesota, wolves are making a comeback. This has many people worried and some people mad. Hunters think wolves are "stealing"" their deer, and every so often the wolves get through a fence and kill livestock. But wolves are a threatened species, and killing one means big fines and even jail time. When Seth Jacobson's best friend Matt seems to lose his favorite calf in an attack, Matt is furious. He takes his frustration out by shooting an innocent wolf while Seth watches helplessly. Now Seth has an important decision to make. Is friendship more important than upholding the law? Minnesota resident Mary Casanova has encountered wolves more than once in her life, and her vivid descriptions of the frozen wilderness make this story wonderfully realistic. As he did for Casanova's Moose Tracks (RB# 96585), narrator Johnny Heller perfectly voices all the emotions of a youngster facing difficult choices.Show more
