Nicknamed the "philosopher of the Forest, Sam Campbell was a writer, photographer, radio personality, promoter, lecturer, and especially a devoted student of living nature. His summer home was a game preserve in the forests of northern Wisconsin, near the town of Three Lakes. There he studied the ways of wild animals, their habits, their work, their play, and the examples they set for human beings in right living. While the world was fast becoming embroiled in the turmoil that created World War II, Sam Campbell decided to write a lighthearted yet philosophic storybook about a much loved Porcupine friend named Inky. This entertaining story, based on his true-life work with animals and people, created a public demand for more of the same. Throughout the course of his life, he turned out one of these story books about every year or two, and the result of this work has left a series of twelve truly inspiring and entertaining books about the humorous antics, friendship, and wisdom of forest life. These fun, true-life adventures, sprinkled with profound wisdom, will appeal to children, college students, and mature adults alike.
