FEARLESS FAMILY by Gardell Dano Christensen


Email this review


...is the family mustelidae, the species name for weasels, otters, minks, martens, badgers, skunks and their ilk, and the stories Gardell Dano Christensen tells about them have a definite and precise vividness. Each of the stories is short, and brisk narratives personalize animal heroes as they live out certain typical experiences in their lives. Fancy, a marten, exhibits the courage and aggression of his kind as he kills a squirrel and then escapes the tearing grasp of an owl; Lutra, an otter, plays as hard as all otters play; Little Shot, a young skunk, is more dignified- because he can afford to be. These are a sampling of the stories that should delight anyone with a taste for the out of doors and the out of the ordinary.
