Book Excerpt: 
. . .I found a fellow I know here running one of these stables, and he has a tent with a lot of hay in it, and says we can sleep in that,[Pg 59] which will save us making camp. We can put the dogs inside and run less chances of having them stolen; also the grub."

So Dude was aroused from his sleep; four other doggy noses were withdrawn from under four bushy tails, and to the accompaniment of howls the load was removed to the hay-tent, the dogs unharnessed, the load unpacked. Hugh undid the bedding and spread it on a pile of straw.

"This will be the last bed we'll strike for some time after we leave here," was his remark.

He grabbed the sack with the meat, and went off to see if he could find space on a stove to boil it. He soon returned with the meat, as well as a bucket in which were canine dainties—kitchen scraps.

"Chuck it into you," was Hugh's remark to the dogs as he threw them the food; "you'll have to work to-morrow."

This book was not easy reading. Life was rough in that environment and the animal abuse was hard to read, as were the hardships of the people. Graft and corruption were as evident then as they are today making the rich richer and the poor poorer. It was an interesting story of thee times.

The story focuses on a group of four friends who make their way to Dawson Creek, and work hard at staking their claims, only to find the local thugs in hi

Good book but lacks a descriptive depth. May have been written for a younger reader. Late elementary or middle school age.

Good tale with lots of action.
