The big tawny dog named Smoky refused to hunt with the pack, so old Bill Tolliver gave the 'no-good hound' to Tom Rainse, the new Game Warden.

Tom discovered that Smoky's keen bloodhound nose tracked men, not animals, and soon he was hot on the trail of a ring of poachers whose mysterious leader was called 'Black Elk.' These illegal hunters swore they'd kill anyone who got in their way, and now Warden Tom had a special partner who could smell trouble coming. Would this tough mountain man and his fighting hound be able to stop the dangerous Black Elk gang? Or would the gentle elk, deer, and beaver disappear forever from this beautiful wild land?


A Nose For Trouble Reviews

    A young game warden is gifted a hound who refuses to track anything but people. This habit leads both man and hound into a mess of trouble.The only thing I would change about this fast paced adventure is the conservation babble. Please. Game warden? Why don't we just have a Social Justice Warrior and be done with it? Does anyone even know what hypocrites these people are? Who the heck cares if some hungry hillbillies poached one or maybe two elk. If they can't afford tags, how can they afford gr [...]

    I had heard of Jim Kjelgaard only in relation to his book Big Red (which I have not read and don’t really know anything about except that it’s about a dog – presumably Big Red). But when A Nose for Trouble threw itself in my path at a recent booksale, I picked it up without even really thinking about it. Maybe that’s because I have a nose for trouble, too… =)The Story.Tom Rainse really has no business buying a horse. His trip to Tanner’s Mountain is only scheduled to last a few days [...]

    “Learning To Trust His Hound” Despite the Bantam Skylark paperback format this violent 1949 tale does not prove typical YA fare. The protagonist, likable Tom Rainse, is 19-21; the plot includes kidnapping and attempted murder; no children or teens are included in this Western type thriller which is set in the mountains of the Northeast. Still, readers of all ages will quickly grasp the author’s intention to educate the public re the critical importance of Wildlife Preservation—not just t [...]

    A Nose For Trouble, by Jim Kjelgaard taught me a little about how life was during frontier times. In the book it would explain how very few people lived in the mountains and each person could walk all around the mountain without running into anybody or seeing any houses. Also, people hunted year round for their food. They did not follow the specific hunting seasons. I think that this is one of the top realistic fiction books that i have read because not very many books can keep me hooked for lon [...]

    Despite being classified as a typical 'young boy's adventure book', I think this will appeal to a much wider audience. It's a tale of mystery that has numerous twists and turns, and a satisfyingly unexpected ending. The characters are well-developed, too.You can't really compare this novel to White Fang or Call of the Wild; this book is far from being about a dog. It really captures the lives of people living in the mountains, and the politics of hunting laws. The main character, Tom, becomes em [...]

    My favorite book growing up and I still love it

  • Janet

    More mystery than some of his others. Tracking poachers. Good plot, but not as memorable as a couple of his others whose scenes are forever imprinted in my mind.

  • Jo

    This book is great not only for animal lovers but also for those who enjoy a good adventure story. It's a shame these are out of print.
