(4.2 stars; 48 reviews)

What unseen force may have brought young Jan Thoreau and his music from out of the barren lands into the remote camp of Lac Bain, forever changing the lives of those few who lived there? What brought him to the home of John and Melisse Cummins as the latter lay on her death bed? Moreover, what was the great sorrow and overpowering sadness which permeated the life of the young man in the months and years following his arrival, and by what means was he to struggle with The Honor of the Big Snows? (Summary by Roger Melin) (7 hr 10 min)

Reviews

LOVE CONQUERS ALL

(5 stars)

JOC almost waited too long to bring about this happy ending, but, then, he always does. With this book I have finished all of his works on Librivox. I highly recommend that you read all of them also. From the friendship of a dog and a bear to the salvation of a brutalized dog to thrilling stories of love, adventure, and redemption, they all grip the reader as the beauty and awesomeness of this great wilderness comes to life . Thanks to all of the readers, but especially to Roger Melin who read so many of them.

Good with only a few flaws

(4 stars)

First of all I saw someone here refer to Roger Melin as "Sir Roger Melin". I love his narration and I love that someone has dubbed him that. He is one of the finest narrators at Librivox. He does a great job with this story. Overall I liked the story but either I missed something or was not paying attention but I don't think it ever was explained why Jan came to the fort when he did. Other than this one issue, it was a nice story.

great book
