His mother was a housecat gone wild-a huge, tiger-striped cat who survived almost certain death at the hands of a man intent upon destroying her and her family. His mother was a housecat gone wild-a huge, tiger-striped cat who survived almost certain death at the hands of a man intent upon destroying her and her family. His father was a bobcat-a proud, cunning creature of the Wisconsin countryside, whose tumultuous courtship with her resulted ultimately in his own violent death. The Crossbreed himself was their largest offspring-the only one that strange litter the feral housecat bore to resemble his sire

Allan Eckert, who established his reputation as a top-level popularizer in natural history in The Great Auk, The Silent Sky and Wild Season, does as well with Yowler, a wild cat, product of the mating of a feral cat (a pet reverted to the wild) and a true bobcat. He was born in Wisconsin, rescued by a boy from a floating log on the Mississippi, later chased off by the boy's ailurophobia father, carried in a boxcar to Louisiana, captured and caged to fight dogs in an Arkansas pit and, after escape, still drawn by some instinct north again

A Sorrow in Our Heart: The Life of Tecumseh was described as "A biography that succeeds better as fiction".

An epic novel by an award-winning author chronicles the settling of the Ohio River Valley, home to the defiant Shawnee Indians, who vow to defend their land against the seemingly unstoppable. Reading now. Until Trevor.

  • As a child I came across the Reader's Digest condensed version of this novel. I immediately fell in love with this story. Years later I just had to order the novel. I'm glad I did. It's an incredible book and I can't wait to give it to my granddaughter.

  • This novel is one of the treasures of my library of animal stories and should belong to everyone's reading experience. An amazing story told with unusual grace and style. Eckert is a master story-teller who deserves to be cherished as a model for all others to follow him.

  • I was expecting a Disney/Hallmark Classic type of story...something for little kids. Was very surprised. Great story, very real and gritty with some soft spots. I could see this happening. Not a Hollywood ending but it wont break your heart either. READ IT!

  • I'm really happy to have found books by authers I read way back in highschool. The condition of the books that I ordered was fantastic and shipping was really quick. THANK YOU.

  • I always love Allan Eckert's books. He's my favorite all-time author. Mr. Eckert was a great story-teller, He will be and has been missed.

  • It is an alright book, and very well written, but a real drag at the end. If you want an upbeat ending, do not read this book.

  • I first read this book in the 3rd or 4th grade, and I am very grateful that I did. I believe I have read this book over 7 times, and will probably read it seven times more. Although the book has one of those odd "young adult" classifications, it reads quite well for an adult. It also, in my not-so-unbiased opinion, has withstood the test of time (originally published in 1967 or thereabouts). If you or your children have a love of cats, wildlife, America and/or adventure, or if you are already familiar with Eckart's inimitable narrative style, check this book out. You'll almost certainly have to buy it used, but fortunately, Amazon has several links available to do this. Special thanks to Allan Eckart himself, not only for writing this moving tale, but also for personally helping me to find a used copy. All in all, a much-cherished piece of my childhood.
