An absorbing, deeply moving adventure story from the Newbery Medal–winning author of The Matchlock Gun
When John Haskell’s father dies, he leaves behind a mountain of debt for his family to overcome. John had never given much thought to his father’s financial iniquities, but now he finds himself faced with the responsibility of paying back those who are owed.
With the aid of an Indian trapper, John sets about the hard work of clearing his family’s name. Through two harsh winters he goes fur trapping—and emerges a man on the other side.
“His story has the quality of good homespun, a valuable quality in these days of sleazy fabrics. There is in it the same simplicity and craftsmanship, and the same durability.”—New York Times, 1943
