Mr. Manville Fenn is always at his best in the stories for boys, that form such an important feature in Christmas book-lists. Mayne Gordon and Esau Dean, the two heroes of the present story, escape from a tyrannical master in the City, who thrashes them into a despairing rage and then prosecutes them for assault. After a good deal of trouble, the lads arrive safely in British Columbia. On the way out they pick up a one-eyed prospector, who proves their good angel in countless hair-breadth adventures, and finally--after trying unsuccessfully at gold-digging--the whole party become comfortable and prosperous settlers.
