Read full description of the books:
Tom Brown quickly earned my respect and fondness, as he described a way of life in tune with the wild. Having myself grown up in a small city, I pined for a life in the wilderness. But now I fear I am too citified to live as Mr. Brown. It would be nice to know that if I were abandoned in the wilds that I could easily survive or even thrive on my own with little more than a pocket knife.
Mr. Brown's easily formed friendship with a badger was particularly appealing to me. From time to time, I have had animals befriend me, often wild animals. It is an experience that is profound and not easily forgotten.
To be able to live in harmony with the natural environment is mostly lost in our outdoor culture here in the West, focused more on how to kill and eat other beings.Tom Brown doesn't completely skip that aspect, but the focus is more about a balanced relationship with the wild environment. We've all met people that seem to be able to befriend every person they meet. Mr. Brown does this in the pine barrens of New Jersey, befriending the natural environment and animals that surround him. The enigmatic Grandfather was key to his insights and ability to do so.
Misanthropy does not always engage a reader to a character in a story, often depending on the reader's own wishes and experiences. I immediately felt an affinity for the lead character in this story, as I have felt alienated so often by America's frequently bizarre society.
The writing is simple, not waxing poetic and at times prosaic,but the story is where the substantial experience awaits. Mr. Brown is a straight forward no nonsense kind of man, and this shines brightly through the writing. It is what he says, rather than how he says it, that is important.
