WILD GEESE CALLING by Stewart Edward White
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Kathrene Pinkerton in Three's a Crew speaks of sharing experiences with the Whites. Those experiences may well have formed some of the groundwork for this novel of the northwest -- and of a youth with the call of new places in his blood, and the wife who was almost always ready to go along. From a Washington lumber camp, to Seattle, then on to Alaska and the interior they went, pulled on by a zest for the frontiers, a love of the unknown, an urge to conquer. It is good adventure, and good characterization. The period is pre-war, but occasional lapses and inaccuracies are forgivable in the pace of the narrative and the quality of the essential picture. An easy book to read, should be a best seller locally, an easy renter everywhere.
