Praise

In understated, atmospheric prose, Losure carefully relates the recorded observations of the “men of science” who examined and/or educated the wild boy, finding the evocative details that hinted at his inner life while painting a vivid picture of the misty forests and hilltops the boy would have called home. Smudgy, gestural charcoal drawings accompany the text in this beautifully produced book, depicting the boy’s struggles as his (usually) well-meaning captors attempted to domesticate him. … Abundant source notes and a strong bibliography make this lyrical, readable book a wonderful nonfiction choice.
