I read this book aloud to my 10 year daughter. It was a slow read, but we stuck with it and I'm glad.

The dialogue, written in uneducated dialect, was difficult to read. The descriptions were very full and often very long.

The book is supposedly written at a Grade 6 level, but it seems that the intent of the book if for an older audience, while the actual action is for a younger one.

My daughter cried at the end and didn't really seem to understand what had happened.

I, on the other hand, was tremendously moved by this book. As a mother of five, four of whom are teenagers, I could relate to the story from Penny's (the father's) point of view. In Jody, his growth over the year, his struggle with what it means to be responsible, his confusion with the adult workings of his world and his eventual realization of what it to means to be an adult, I felt like I could understand my own children better. I can look at them and see Jody's confusion, and anger and ultimate maturation.

I think every parent of teens should read this book and look for their own children in it.

A coming of age story, but much more than that. A story set in Florida in the 1800's. Not a locale I have much knowledge about in any time period but maybe the last quarter of the 20th century. It was a very odd experience trying to imagine Florida as a wilderness, Florida when nature was still a major obstacle for man to overcome. But I also thought that was the most interesting aspect of the book: the conflict between nature and man, unintentionally counter to each other's purposes, no balance to be found. While Jody's father, Penny, believes it is reasonable to learn to live with nature, too often the family comes close to losing the battle. Can the two subsist, or must one lose for the other to survive?

This the first novel I have read by Marjorie Rawlings. She is a good storyteller. I enjoyed the variety of the characters she creates. The warmth you felt in Jody's relationship with his father and the detail with which she paints the experience of living in the Florida wilderness were remarkable. ( )

This book was much better than I anticipated. The characters are well developed.. I felt sad to have the story end and not know how they fared in the future. The story begins with Jodi as a somewhat irresponsible boy and becomes a man through a heart- rending event. I normally find "coming of age" novels as too sappy for my taste, but this was well- written and never boring or predictable. ( )

(24) I actually read this out loud to my 10 year old sons and finished it last month. I have been undecided about adding the books I read aloud to them to my 'library.' This is a re-read as I read it myself as a tween - I remembered it being a difficult read which I wanted to stop many times, I remember it being shattering emotionally given my love for animals and my own longing for pets. My adult self agrees with those memories and I daresay my children do as well. Although, they put on a brave front re: Flag's denouement - cracking jokes and making fun of my emotional distress. I later confronted the softer one who admitted it was indeed a smokescreen to deflect the pain.

They got a kick out of the Southern country dialect. I wonder what my 12 year old Massachusetts self must of made of the Southern backwoods patois - I certainly can make more sense of it now given my adopted home State. I have read the children abridged versions of such classics as 'The Call of the Wild,' 'Black Beauty,' and 'Treasure Island,' but this is one of the first unabridged classic novels I have attempted with them and I think it was a success. The other was the more brief but similar 'Old Yeller,' which really got to them about 1-2 years ago. We have also read the entire 'Harry Potter' and "Chronicles of Narnia' series out loud over the past few years, and recently finished another (horrid) series called 'The Land of Stories.' We also read 'The Phantom Tollbooth,' which I had never read as a kid. I know with at least one of my sons, I am instilling in him the love of reading, and I am trying my darnedest with the other.

In any event, this should fit the bill as a 're-read' which I do this time of year. This was lovely, heart-breaking, a good book for little boys, even if some of it is rough for an animal lover and someone who has never and would never hunt. The bear cubs! The panther cubs! really! But I do believe, they shouldn't be sheltered from this mentality in particular as our family eats meat. It is a way to introduce the concept of hard choices. Anyway, I am glad I chose this for the boys and I hope it will be a permanent memory burrowed deep in their little hearts. I will now start adding books I read aloud to them to my yearly count/review list if I find the choices worth it. ( )

A column of smoke rose thin and straight from the cabin chimney. The smoke was blue where it left the red of the clay. It trailed into the blue of the April sky and was no longer blue but gray. The boy Jody watched it, speculating. The fire on the kitchen hearth was dying down. His mother was hanging up pots and pans after the noon dinner. The day was Friday. She would sweep the floor with a broom of ti-ti and after that, if he were lucky, she would scrub it with the corn shucks scrub. If she scrubbed the floor she would not miss him until he had reached the Glen. He stood a minute, balancing the hoe on his shoulder.
