The Wilderness Castaways
ILLUSTRATED BY H.S. WATSON
One of the “meatiest” stories for boys that has seen the light for many years. The tale of how two lads, one a self-reliant Newfoundlander, and the other an over-pampered New Yorker, went adrift in a fog on Hudson Bay and were forced to make their own living out of the wild in a sub-Arctic winter. It is full of adventure from first to last.—Boston Globe.
Full of hunting, of peril, and privation, and shows how a grim outdoors can transform the life of a self-centered youth. It is the work of a man who knows the heart of a boy, as well as the heart of the wilderness.—Epworth Herald.
One of the best boys’ stories published is this record of a spoiled New York lad and a sailor boy who became separated from a hunting party. Their adventures, and the change wrought in the selfish city lad are told with a vividness and sense of humor which will appeal at once to the boy reader or any other.—American Tourist.
The story is brimful of exciting incidents, and will be numbered among the boy readers’ favorites.—San Francisco Bulletin.
Mr. Wallace has made a gripping story, and held up manliness and courage in an attractive light—Boston Journal.
In this book two boys make good, and that is a mighty good thing to present in any book for boys.—Baltimore Sun.

The story is told with a realism that is a result of Mr. Wallace’s long experience in the northland. It is one of the best books that could be given to a boy of twelve or fourteen, and one of the most acceptable.—Chicago Daily News.
Like all his others, it is intensely interesting, the style vivid, the ideas high and elevating, and the whole story clean and wholesome. All boys like his books and read them with eagerness.—Christian Observer.
There is in it much of the woodcraft and outdoor life that boys are learning more and more to love, thanks to the scout movement. Dillon Wallace knows by experience what his boy readers like, and this is one of the best books he has written. It is well illustrated.—Indianapolis News.
The author has written a thrilling tale in which is incorporated much real information about woodcraft and the outdoor life.—Boston Globe.
To those who wish a library for boys, with some books of clean adventure in the woods and waters of the far north, this volume is indispensable.—Sioux City Tribune.
