TARGET: I am an 8th grade teacher, training to be a librarian, and I have several 
boys who are reluctant readers and if they do read it is about hunting; deer 
hunting, bow hunting etc. Any ideas for titles that are successful in getting these 
boys to read? 



HIT: Many thanks to all who suggested books/magazines. I got a lot of wonderful 


Here is a list of the information:

Basically all of the books by Gary Paulson 

Sees Behind Trees by Michael Dorris

Skeeter by Kay Jordan Smith 

Swallowing Stones by Joyce MacDonald?

The Education of Little Tree by Carter

Deathwatch by Robb White

Caribou Crossing by Mel Ellis
Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelson
Alaska Bear Tales by Larry Kaniut

Moose Tracks by Mary Casanova.

Where the Red Fern Grows by Rawls 
Lion Hound by Kjelgaard (although the reading level may be high)
My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George

Indian Creek Chronicles by Pete Fromm


Additional authors:
Thomas Dygard may have a title which will fit.  The closest in my
collection are River Danger and Wilderness Peril which are set in the
woods but not about hunting.
Will Hobbs

Francis Tucket


Magazines like Field and Stream, American Angler and Minnesota Sportsman


Capstone <>  
Press offers The Great Outdoors series.  It includes the following titles:
Bow hunting, Deer hunting, Duck hunting, Pheasant hunting...etc.  Heinemann
has a title called Hunting.
