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

Planet of Dreams
Planet of Dreams Sented by Carlos

He stood watching while George Atkinson spun around, dark eyes flashing, hair tousled. There was a two days' growth of beard darkening Atkinson's face. "Why, George," Loveral said, swiftly examining the litter of metal and wood which was spread over a table behind Atkinson. There was a home-made hammer in Atkinson's hand. "What have we here, George?" "Something for you," Atkinson said, tightening his fingers about the handle of the hammer. Loveral grinned his famous Loveral grin. "That's fine. What could it be?"

Suddenly, Honath lost his temper. "Lose it, then!" he shouted. "Let us unlearn everything we know only by rote, go back to the beginning, learn all over again, and continue to learn, from our own experience. Spokesman, you are an old man, but there are still some of us who haven't forgotten what curiosity means!" "Quiet!" the Spokesman said. "We have heard enough. We call on Alaskon the Navigator." "Much of the Book is clearly untrue," Alaskon said flatly, rising. "As a handbook of small trades it has served us well. As a guide to how the universe is made, it is nonsense, in my opinion; Honath is too kind to it. I've made no secret of what I think, and I still think it." "And will pay for it," the Spokesman said, blinking slowly down at Alaskon. "Charl the Reader." "Nothing," Charl said, without standing, or even looking up.
