Back to God's Country: And Other Stories

Thirteen of the author’s most famous short stories of adventure in the Canadian Northwest, the Arctic Circle, the Great Barrens, Hudson's Bay posts, and with Royal Northwest Mounted Police. The title story is an amazing hero-tale easily comparable to Jack London -- for the hero is a Great Dane brought to the Frazer River by a Chinese gold prospector, and the dog, Wapi, fought against unbeatable odds to defend the honor of a woman he had decided was his mistress This link for educational purpose only.

Thirteen of the author’s most famous short stories of adventure in the Canadian Northwest, the Arctic Circle, the Great Barrens, Hudson's Bay posts, and with Royal Northwest Mounted Police. The title story is an amazing hero-tale easily comparable to Jack London -- for the hero is a Great Dane brought to the Frazer River by a Chinese gold prospector, and the dog, Wapi, fought against unbeatable odds to defend the honor of a woman he had decided was his mistress. "The Match" and a few others are Mounties tales. "The Case of Beauvois" is a macabre tale of murder. "The Mouse" is about just such a pet kept in a sourdough's pocket. All these stories set in "the white wilderness of moaning storm" are simply outstanding.

Today most Americans are unfamiliar with Canada's grand history, but in Curwood's heyday American children were as apt to play at being red-coated Mounties as they were at being cowboys.
