I want to go back in time and love this in #1986 my last book to complete #CenturyReads 100 years/100 books. I have always liked animal fantasies such as Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH so I don't know why I hadn't read it before now, but I will definitely continue. #BBRC anthropomorphic before 2010 @LibrarianRyan #SeriesRead2021 @TheSpineView

Plenty of adventure, different dialects, a great villain. Just wonderful.

TheSpineView Fantastic 13mo
LibrarianRyan Great choice. 13mo

If one could ignore the racist slurs, one could appreciate this adventure story and culture clash set in the #Oregon wild. Trask relates to the indigenous people, but one tyee, chief, has to decide for his tribe to die in peace or war because death is inevitable. White man will come. Should be a classic, if there weren't slurs. #CenturyReads 1960

I would like to see the original story before it was revised for the 50s readers. There was some disgraceful jokes about one of their friends who was overweight. I chose it for #CenturyReads 1928

I should not like this book, being raised a Baptist, but I enjoy debating the Bible with others. And, this satire of a hypocritical Baptist/Methodist preacher is a great debate of the many things that confuse people of the Bible. Elmer Gantry, with his showmanship, is someone you will love to hate. You just can't wait for him to get his comeuppance. He is really an unforgivable guy. #CenturyReads 1927

DivineDiana If you possibly can, watch the movie. Amazing performances.Powerful. 🎥 (edited) 1y
Butterfinger He is the worst kind of #Monster - He doesn't believe what he preaches. He preys on people's insecurities. #BBRC @LibrarianRyan 1y

hannah-leeloo I read tiger lily it wasn't too bad, different 2y
Texreader I‘ve read a lot of DuMaurier books but I‘ve never heard of this one. I‘ll look forward to your review. 2y
Butterfinger @Texreader I decided to pass on it. I didn't need 1949. I'm going to read her nonfiction Vanishing Cornwall instead for 1967. 2y
ElizaMarie I have Tiger Lilly! I didn't even think about reading it during the #FairyTaleChallenge ! Ha! totally didn't think outside the box on that one. Let me know what you think about it though. I might bump it up on my TBR :) 2y

I'm glad I read it. Not overly sweet. Likeable characters. It seems that Disney used some elements of this version. And, I am happy to say that I can use it for 1978 #CenturyReads from last year's goal. #FairytaleReadingChallenge @Charityann

EmilieGR I LOVE Robin McKinley! 2y
Charityann This is one of my favorites! 😊 2y
Butterfinger @Charityann if it hadn't been for your challenge, I wouldn't have known about it. Thank you. 2y
