Robert Charles Wilson (born Detroit, Michigan in 1951) is an American novelist and a lawyer. Wilson's novels characteristically are works of horror involving the supernatural. His first novel, Crooked Tree, about terror in the northern lower peninsula of his home state, was published in 1980 (paperback in 1981 and re-published paperback in 2006). The plot concerns a sudden onslaught of bear attacks. People try to understand why and come to see a pattern in the attacks.

Robert Charles Wilson's time has come. His first novel from Tor, Darwinia, was a finalist for science fiction's Hugo award, and a Locus bestseller in paperback. His next novel, Bios, is a critical and commercial success. Beginning with "The Perseids," winner of Canada's national SF award, this collection showcases Wilson's suppleness and strength: bravura ideas, scientific rigor, and living, breathing human beings facing choices that matter.

Robert Charles Wilson. I adore Robert Charles Wilson. I refer to this book as his "Stephen King book". Just when you think you know where Robert Charles Wilson is headed with this there's always a new twist

Robert Charles Wilson. At times it feels like King, if King were a better prose stylist and wrote Science Fiction, rather than horror and fantasy. This is one of the first Wilson books I read and I found it engrossing and completely entertaining, with a wonderful Arthur C Clarke kind of philosophical SF that also tells a great story. Just when you think you know where Robert Charles Wilson is headed with this there's always a new twist. I'm glad I read this and to me anyway, this work far surpasses most other works of Science Fiction.

An intelligent horror story with skin-crawling entertainment. Crooked Tree is one of the rare books that uses Indian lore with intelligence and respect. A gripping horror tale that deftly weaves Indian lore with suspense amid a northern Michigan setting.

When, in Michigan's Crooked Tree State Forest, bears suddenly attack man with gruesome ferocity, the Ottawa Indians begin speaking of a malevolent intelligence controlling the bears and Axel Michelson tries to save his life and his Indian wife's soul

4 out of 5 stars.

My mom recommended this book to me. She said it freaked her out when she read it. I can't say it freaked me out or scared me so much. It did hold my interest.

I was more interested in the Indian folklore and legends of the Ottawa tribe. I don't know if the Bearwalk legend or The Feast of the Dead ritual are true or not,I researched it and didn't come up with much. I know the Ottawa were very real.

The story is based in Northern Michigan, and the Crooked Tree State Forest. People are being killed by bears in the state forest and many believe it is the Bearwalk legend, as the victims tounges have been removed.

Axel and Janis live in the forest and are deeply affected, especially Janis. What is happening to her, is she a part of what is happening? Most definitely, but how? Axel goes in search of how to stop the madness. Will he succeed??

This book terrified me when my sister gave it to me as Christmas present in 1980! We had a wood stove in our family room in Maryland (not Michigan - didn't matter) and I remember going out to get a load of wood for the stove after dark. I'd been so engrossed in the book that when I heard a noise in the woods I totally freaked, dropped the wood and ran into the house, locked the door and sat in the cold the rest of the night. Oh, but I did finish the freaky book. This is one of the best thrillers I've read - and that is from an old librarian!

Thirty one years later, I still can remember so many parts of this book. Being that I read a couple hundred books a year, that is something! Need a good fright - this is it!

read this book many years ago. My family asked me to read some to them so I ended up reading the book to them. They have since asked me to give them the book so they could read it themselves but I had since donated it. I was elated to find this book online. The book was in great condition and it arrived so quickly. Thank you

I got this because I have heard rumors that they are going to be filming this story soon in an area that I am familiar with. I am glad that I did. It is a real good "page turner" mystery and I enjoyed reading it. I expected it to be more predictable than it was, and was pleasantly surprised overall!

As a family from Michigan - we have all loved this book and passed it around to each other for years. I had been unable to find an extra copy of this until I went on Amazon.com and found a used copy. The story is exciting, scary and very authentic. This book will go into the library at our family's cabin in the north woods of Michigan. We LOVE it. The book looks almost new, the quality and price were fantastic.
I had a copy of this book when it was first published. Somehow through moving and lending it out I no longer have it. Until now...... This book is amazing. Anyone who has been in Northwest section of the lower penninsula of Michigan will definetly enjoy this book. Any one who likes folklore, wild animals, native american customs, and northern woods will love this book. It keeps you spellbound. I am so happy to have found this book. I ordered 5 copies, one for me and 4 to pass on to friends so they will
know more about the wonderful area that was home to me for 23 years.
