The classic adventure diary account of Edgar Christian, nineteen year old explorer in 1926 with Jack Hornby in the Canadian Northwest. This diary was found two years after his death in the Barren Grounds. This is a gripping story of innocence, idealism, and courage. An excellent copy of an important and scarce book â€“ also a very good and unforgettable read.
