When Cheenbuk met an Indian, all that prevented a fight between the two of them was Cheenbuk's limited knowledge of the Indian language. However, when their respective tribes got wind of their interaction, Cheenbuk was captured by the Dogrib Indian tribe. War quickly became inevitable. When intrepid white traders Mowat and MacSweenie arrive, will things get better, or will they only get worse? Ballantyne's captivating plotlines make this adventure novel completely gripping for fans of Jack London.
Robert Michael Ballantyne (1825 — 1894) was a Scottish author. Born into a family of famous printers and publishers, his expertise was juvenile fiction, and he wrote over 100 hugely successful books in this genre. The most notable of these include ‘The Coral Island’, ‘The Eagle Cliff’, and ‘The Gorilla Hunters’. Famed for his tendency to fully immerse himself into the environment of whichever story he was working on, his lively prose is unmissable for those who enjoyed Matt Haig’s ‘The Midnight Library’.
