    Bumped up to five stars for emotional enjoyment. It’s a raw, blustery outdoors story with a lot of snow and Canadian tundra. There are plenty of sad moments and poignant ones as Billy pursues his man and finds himself surprised. The antagonists and friends he meets along the way keep the story moving along, with one of my favorites being the small girl they call Mystery. There's a brief appearance by the dog Kazan, who was featured in another Curwood novel. Content: a handful of profanity Bumped up to five stars for emotional enjoyment.

    James Oliver Curwood delivers another rough and tumble adventure in the magnificent Canadian Northwest, alongside a sweet, chaste, quaint, and crazy unusual love story. First published in 1913, I listened to this as a free download from LibriVox.org, read by excellent readers.

    Not a book I would normally read...but a story that I have come to love. When the word "romance" is included in the title, I tend to shy away. However, this was a wonderfully clean story about a man's love for a woman and the desperate lengths he went to in order to to show that love. Conflict abounds in this book including man vs. man, man vs. himself, and man vs. nature. With a very Jack London feel nature becomes an almost tangible enemy attempting to bar the protagonist from his goals. All i Not a book I would normally read...but a story that I have come to love.

    Ridiculously stupid book. I hated it about halfway through, but finished it because of this challenge and I can't just stop reading books. Ridiculously stupid book. I hated it about halfway through, but finished it because of this challenge and I can't just stop reading books.

    A true love story Adventure, love gained, love lost, tragedy, suspense, happy ending. Death and murder without the gruesome details. Pure love without the lust. A book for those who appreciate old style literature. It is not for those who are looking to be titillated by blood and sex scenes.
