Description

This is the widely praised juvenile equivalent of Evans' classic novel of Indian-white relations, Mist on the River. Hal, a modern Indian youth, must confront a business man over a logging operation that threatens his village's traditional salmon stream. A murder suspect and a mysterious dog enliven this fascinating novel of conscience for young readers.

About the Author
Hubert Evans was born in Vankleek Hill, Ontario in 1892 and raised in Galt, Ontario. He worked as a reporter before enlisting in 1915. He married in 1920 and built his permanent seaside home at Roberts Creek, BC. His first novel, The New Front Line (1927) is about a pioneering World War One veteran in BC. He and his wife also lived in northern BC Indian villages, resulting in his acclaimed second novel, Mist on the River (1954). His 0 Time in Your Flight (1979), written in his late eighties despite near blindness, recounts a year in the life of an Ontario boy in 1899. Revered by Margaret Laurence as "the elder of our tribe," the Quaker outdoorsman also published two hundred short stories, sixty serials, twelve plays, three juvenile novels, three books of poetry and one biography. Hubert Evans died in 1986, after seven decades of professional writing.
