    1. When David Carrigan of the Canadian Mounted Police is sent on a mission to catch Black Roger Audemard he feels he has picked up an unusually difficult, but enjoyable job. He is to bring his man back, dead or alive. But after a peaceful weeks journey into his trip he is attacked by an unknown enemy and his trip comes to a sudden and jarring end. Guest or prisoner, he is now in the control of the one who shot at him, a woman. Now, he has another mission, to find out why she shot at him and if she [...]


    2. Everyone is familiar with the idiom “We always get our man” in reference to the diligence displayed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police but does this also apply to the fairer sex? David Carrigan, sergeant in the R.C.M.P is given the assignment to track down and arrest Black Roger Audemard, a known criminal. His duty is clear and he embarks on it with no doubt of its outcome. That is until he is shot by a beautiful woman and suddenly his priorities blur. James Curwood, with an intimate knowl [...]


    3. Read this a long time ago and loved it! Never got around to reviewing it because of not having my copy handy to add (it's actually my mom's book), and someone has actually added it nowif only procrastination worked that well every time! Tweety has written an excellent summary in her review, so I will just say the book was excellent and recommend that you head on over to find your own copy to read. Very good outdoor story!


    4. This is one of my all-time favorite books. Classic pulp-fiction from the early 1920s, your typical adventurer in the Canadian North walking the fine line between love and justice. I read this book every couple of years. One of Curwood's finest.


    5. Outstanding!! Kept me on edge, and racking my brains for the answer to the mystery. I love books with Mounties, and this was perfect-had me dying to travel the same empty Canadian wilderness David did. A two thumbs up!



    6. I read this book because we toured Curwood's faux castle writing studio in Owosso, MI. I expected this to be a wilderness story akin to those of Jack London, but found it was nothing of the sort. The wilderness barely figures in the plot at all, except as a backdrop for the interactions of the characters. If I'd recap the plot, it'd take about three paragraphs - and they wouldn't be very long. Most of the book consists of overly flowery language describing how buff the main character is, how inv [...]


    7. Impossible to review. Picked it up at a garage sale and had a wonderful afternoon and evening. It took me back to reading adventure stories of many years ago—the heroic character who took on all challenges, loved the outdoors, was a gentleman to the core, and ultimately gave up being a North West Mounted PO to marry the girl of his dreams.


    8. Enjoyed the plot - long, twists & surprises, end wrap up and interesting plot. Nicely narrated by Roger Melin, recommended. Other reviewer is correct- it's an early days pulp fiction.


    9. Este libro me sigue gustando tanto como la primera vez que lo leí hace muchos años.En él se ve claramente el amor del autor por la naturaleza, (evocado en las amables descripciones que hace de los paisajes), y su opinión sobre el efecto corruptor de la civilización.La historia va sobre David Carrigan, un policía montado que va tras los pasos de un peligroso criminal en las hermosas tierras del Norte, pero casi pierde la vida cuando alguien le dispara con intención de matarle. El misterios [...]


    10. The overall theme of the story is: which is greater - the letter of the law or love?Three threads - adventure, mystery, and love - intertwine to make this an enjoyable read, with more twists and turns than the river it is set upon. Written in the early 1920's, this does have the unfortunate language of the time in reference to one character who is Metis but in the story referred to contemptuously as "half-breed" by the white officer of the law. Overall I enjoyed the book, finishing it cover to c [...]
