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.

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
