      From reading the book description and seeing the historic-looking cover, I was concerned the book might be dull. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The stories (that the main character recounts throughout the book) were touching, clean, relaxing, and generally just felt good. It was fun to hear of the main character's adventures in the wild, and left several stories hanging enough that it left me, as well as the kids to which he told the stories, coming back for more. It didn't require much co [...]

      The story is set in early pioneer days in the Indiana/Ohio area before all the land was cleared for farming. The main character, Thomas Andrew William Addison, tells the story of his adventurous youth to his foster children over several evenings in front of the fireplace.

      My original copy of this was an old, battered book without a cover. I read it at least three times as a boy and then sent away for a copy as an adult after my original was lost.

An excellent view of the romance of the pioneer days. Great read!

      My grandpa used to read to us kids from this book when we were real little. Then he got to calling me Uncle Time Andy Bill. I used to hate it but got used to it after a while. My sisters shorted it to calling me Andy Bill for years and now they just call me Bill from time to time.

      it was really cool to read a book that my grandfather read to my mother when she was a little girl. I think any child who loves adventure and Daniel Boone type stories will enjoy this book.

      Wonderful adventure. My third grade teach read this and Bears of Blue River to the class and I have read it a few time hence.
