David Raine is travelling, trying to escape his own memories. On the train he meets Father Rolland, who invites him North, to a world of "mystery and savage glory", to help him find himself again. On the same train, he meets a mysterious woman searching for a man named Michael O'Doone. When she's gone, he finds a thin package on her seat. It contains the photograph of a girl and David makes it his aim to find her, while following Father Rolland into the mysterious North. (Summary by Rapunzelina)

Reviews

(3 stars)

The title is misleading. The story is mostly about David and his experiences. Marge is a secondary character. The story is not so much an adventure story, but one of finding yourself after a great emotioal loss. The narration at the beginning and end was very good.

SLOW START! BUT THE LAST HALF WAS VINTAGE CURWOOD

(4.5 stars)

I agree wite the comments previously enteted. Mis-named and good reading at the first and the last. Curwood fans will not be disappointed.

Best James Oliver Curwood book I’ve read.
