This book was so good. 🙂 The copyright on it is 1919! Can you imagine? 🙂
Mounted Police Office Conniston has tracked and captured the outlaw John Keith for killing a judge. The two men are holed up in a cabin, in the Hudson Bay area, because of an Artic storm. Brrrr. Conniston is dying, so, because of a resemblance to one another, they believe they can successfully change identities and Keith can return to civilization as Conniston.
This was such a good adventure story. There was always a sense of foreboding ~ will the characters who knew Conniston believe Keith is Conniston? There were surprises in the story leaving this reader wondering if Keith’s secret was going to be revealed. There was a mystery with one of the characters. And, each time I read a book by Curwood, I either get frostbite because he describes the northern winters so well, or I get lost in the wilderness, fearing I will never return to land of people. 5***** adventuress stars!
