Years ago I inherited about a dozen books (including this one) that belonged to my grandfather (I am 51); most were written in the early 1900's. I was fascinated with almost all of them.
There are not many characters in this book, probably less than twelve. I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone. For any school students (Junior High & higher), this would be a great choice to use for a book report (do a book report on an old book for a change). For any one else, this is a great novel that was written (copywrited) in 1922.
According to google, the author wrote 33 popular adventure novels; unfortunately only 2 are available as audio books. Reading books like this kind of make you wonder why people bother writing new books - it is that good!

I was really enjoying the story until about 1/2 way through when the author started to repeat himself
Then the main character started to be a little melodramatic
But it reads like an old tale of the frozen north and I loved it
