Another of the author's unique tales of strenuous life in the great Canadian Northwest, where Man and Nature are face to face, and the struggle for life is reduced to its crudest and most vital form.

"The only thing I've had--that and my fur coat--to keep me from freezing to death for more than four days. Haven't so much as seen a sign of life since I lost the dog track."

"This country's a terror," observed the half-breed emphatically.

All four men lit their pipes. The sick man only drew once or twice at his, then he laid it aside. The process of smoking caused the blisters on his face to smart terribly.

"Gives your face gyp," said the half-breed, sympathetically. "Best not bother to smoke to-night."

He pulled vigorously at his own pipe, and the two Indians followed suit. And gradually a pleasant odour, not of tobacco but some strange perfume, disguised the reek of the atmosphere. It was pungent but delightful, and the stranger remarked upon it.

"What's that you are smoking?" he asked.

****.

A good movie script. Kind of a mystery where the reader is the only one who knows how all the characters are interconnected. A villain who owns a mean dog is the centerpiece for this story set in Canada.
