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, which he titled the Sanctuary of Wegimind, was a game preserve in the forests of northern Wisconsin, near the town of Three Lakes. There he studied, mainly in the summertime, the ways of wild animals, “their habits, their work, their play, and the examples they set for human beings in right living.”
Raccoons are notorious for their mischief and “streetwise” animal antics, but seldom has there been a raccoon that could match the career of Loony Coon. Life for the otters, geese, deer, skunks, and porcupines of the Campbells\’ wilderness home was always unpredictable when this bundle of energy was in town. So join in the fun, spills, and porcupine quills – the misadventures of Loony Coon – told in the wonderful Sam Campbell style. Paperback, 236 pages.
