From the Novel by James Oliver Curwood
AND WHAT A STORY
Picture it ! Raoul Challoner with his wife, Nanette,
and her baby lost to the world in their little cabin in
Cod's Great Wilderness—happy in tluir hiding place
free from law's injustice, their only friends a big black
bear and a wolf-dog. Then conies O'Connor of the
Northwest Mounted to take them back. And as man
and wife and child, bear and dog, start down on the
trail that leads straight to the gallows their whole wide
world bursts into flame.
A forest fire so real that it staggers you! A battle
through so fierce that it awes you! And a finish so fine
that you'll cheer it !
