Northwest!


Read by Roger Melin

(4.4 stars; 55 reviews)

Northwest! takes place in western Canada, primarily western Alberta and British Columbia. The story revolves around Jimmy not being sure whether or not he shot and killed a Northwest Mounted while he and some friends were out hunting one day. Not exactly a bushman, he needs to head northwest to avoid capture by the officials who are out to find him and bring him to trial. At least that's what he suspects. Survival in the wilderness for one who was raised in British class proves to be a daunting experience, and we learn of the trials he is to be put through while he is on the lam. (Summary by Roger Melin) (9 hr 20 min)

(4 stars)

An interesting tale.. But not really my style.. It was well read though & even though it's not typically in my line of interest.. The reader made it interesting enough that I had to listen to the finish.. Well done Roger!

I really enjoy stories like this
