Author Sam Campbell offers readers a delightful peek into the often-hidden wonders of nature – and of human nature as well – in his charming accounts of life in the woods of Northern Wisconsin. From spring to late fall, Sam spends each year on an island woodland, called “The Sanctuary,” in Northern Wisconsin. Each year holds its own surprises and adventures as Sam and his companions adopt orphan animals and raise them, interact with the wild creatures of the forest, and observe the behavior of the many inhabitants of the forest with the changing of the seasons. Each book incorporates humorous and touching tales of particular animals, a deep appreciation of God\’s beautiful creation, astutely-written observations of the woodland animals, and reflections on human nature.
Life at the Campbell\’s summer cabin is peaceful and tranquil – well, some of the time. Enter two rambunctious porcupines named Salt and Pepper. Share the joys, adventures and hilarious mischief these little pincushions and other forest friends create at the author\’s island home. This delightful story will prick your heart as you see the warm wisdom of nature that Sam Campbell reveals in every chapter. Paperback, 258 pages.
