SQUAW BOY

A city boy's adventures in the west prove at first humiliating-then rewarding. The unnerving experience of mistakenly shooting the ranch's pet badger in order to prove his skill to his father is only the first of young Reed Chesington's trials before he can prove his worth as a capable human being. But during an incipiently unsuccessful summer Reed strays from a pack trip, gets lost, is given up for dead for a whole winter- which he spends with Wolf Runner, a Shoshone chief's nephew who teaches him the ways of nature, manhood and friendship. A well written, suspenseful character builder, and a good dose of Montana-Idaho country.
