Sam Campbell (1895-1962) has been called the finest ever in writing about nature, forest, and wildlife. During the late 1940's and early 1950's, Sam, the genial "philosopher of the forest," visited many campuses to speak on conservation and narrate his often hilarious movies of north woods animal life. Hundreds of schools and audiences across the country demanded his return year after year; he was known to more families and young people than any other author-lecturer
Sam is gone now, but his books still speak to us of life in the forest. They have recently been reprinted with beautiful new covers. So if you dream of backpacking and canoeing trips and long to see panthers, moose, beaver, and river otters in the wild, come spend some time with Sam and Giny and fall in love with their delightful forest friends.
