Nicknamed the "philosopher of the Forest, Sam Campbell was a writer, photographer, radio personality, promoter, lecturer, and especially a devoted student of living nature. His summer home was a game preserve in the forests of northern Wisconsin, near the town of Three Lakes. There he studied the ways of wild animals, their habits, their work, their play, and the examples they set for human beings in right living. While the world was fast becoming embroiled in the turmoil that created World War II, Sam Campbell decided to write a lighthearted yet philosophic storybook about a much loved Porcupine friend named Inky. This entertaining story, based on his true-life work with animals and people, created a public demand for more of the same. Throughout the course of his life, he turned out one of these story books about every year or two, and the result of this work has left a series of twelve truly inspiring and entertaining books about the humorous antics, friendship, and wisdom of forest life. These fun, true-life adventures, sprinkled with profound wisdom, will appeal to children, college students, and mature adults alike.… (mais)

Just like humans, the animal world is filled with rascally species that just make you shake your head in frustration and laugh at their antics. Sam Campbell writes about both animals and humans in the tenth book of his Living Forest series, Beloved Rascals, as he and his wife Giny interact with a variety of said rascals from their own Sanctuary of Wegimind as well as in and around Canada’s Banff National Park.

The return to their island home begins on a somber note for the Campbells as they drive past a fire in the woods that is slowly growing, they get help and provide service of food and water for the numerous firefighters, forest rangers, and game wardens battling the blaze. After rain ends the fire, the Campbells continue their journey home sadden by the loss of animal life and one burned crow, named Midnight, they intend to help mend. Soon Midnight is joined by a pair of baby raccoons, a pair of porcupines, and an infant hare that escaped from a wolverine. But the forest fire make the Campbells nervous and after a group of campers led by a guide they trusted left an open fire going on their property they post ‘No Trespassing’ signs. But then a southern family, the Meadows, shows up excited to be near Sam Campbell and at the Sanctuary after unknowingly passed a downed trespass sign on their way to the Sanctuary. However, the Campbells are impressed by their visitors excellent camping skills—though tenderfoots, they studied numerous books for proper camping etiquette—and their twins sons enthusiasm that they allow the family to stay after the Meadows find the fallen sign and apologize. The Meadows appearance and enthusiasm for nature allows the Campbells to head to the Canadian Rockies—Banff National Park—to photograph and film wildlife as well as interact up close and personal on occasions with both animals and humans. One of the latter is the local legend, Klondike, a former miner who is rumored to have a pet three-legged grizzly, but is notoriously hard to find.

Like the previous book, Beloved Rascals comes in slightly longer than the rest of the series at 244 pages making it the second longest of Campbell’s books. As usually Campbell’s engaging prose makes the activities and misadventures of the numerous animals chronicled come alive in a very easy to read way. The Canadian trip and the foreshadowing of Campbell’s meeting with Klondike pepper the book, but it does take away from the other things Campbell writes about resulting in a good balance. But like the last book, Campbell laments that the actions and carelessness of others is slowly making him cut off the Sanctuary for other people in an effort to protect the land and the animals.

Beloved Rascals is quintessential Campbell with wildlife and human misadventures in the forests of North America, but once again shows the downside of human carelessness as well. Spanning from the familiar Sanctuary to the spectacular Canadian Rockies, this book allows the reader to experience both sorrow and joy of the animal life in North America. ( )

Few people can flush out the personalities of wild animals as well as Sam Campbell. In Beloved Rascals the author reveals a knack for making you gasp at the ornery ways of the more cantankerous members of his wilderness neighborhood.

At the same time you will be touched with the same infectious love Sam has for all these forest friends. There’s Midnight, the belligerent old crow, Carcajou, the wolverine, Cominsky, the raccoon, and many other plays in Sanctuary Lake’s wildlife theater.
