By Jean Craighead George

Procyon, a young raccoon, explores the woods, has great adventures, and learns to survive in the world around him

Procyon, a raccoon born in a forest in Minnesota, lives happily with his mother, brother, and two sisters. He spends his days playing in the woods around their den, learning to find larvae and crayfish in the streambeds, and to avoid predators like Otus, the screech owl.

But eventually the little raccoon must leave his family to make his own way in the world, relying on all that his mother has taught him. Suddenly, Procyon’s littermates are his rivals—for food, for shelter, and for a mate. Evading humans as well as wild predators, Procyon uses his instincts and natural cunning to do what all animals must: survive and thrive.
