Publisher's Summary

James Oliver Curwood spins a tale of adventure and romance in the Canadian wilderness as "The Law" puts Jolly Roger on the run, separating him from his love, Nada. Peter, the half Airedale, half Mackenzie hound called "Pied-Bot" is torn between the two and determined to protect both against all enemies, man or beast. This is a heart-rending tale of love and heroics between a man, a woman and their little dog, Peter.

A 1922 romantic adventure with few characters.

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!

Wordy and repetitive but a great story

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
