DOG OF THE NORTH

Long drawn out as an Arctic winter, this narrative details young Cleeve Britton's search for Alaskan gold and for claim jumpers, in the course of which, and with the help of his black malamute, Jet, he strikes pay dirt. Cleeve lives with his widowed mother who runs a bakery in Bettles, but the yen for mining is in him. He hears of a strike up near Beaver City and, simultaneously, of a jump on the strike, and events soon embroil him and Jet in a chase after the Ruskin brothers who are doing their best to rob Uncle Sim's Beaver City strike. The brothers caught, Sim distributes his claim among those who have helped him out and the disbursement sees Cleeve, Jet and his mother well provided for.
