KIRKUS REVIEW

Logging on Puget Sound sets the background for the story of John Watson whose father, owner of a logging camp, cannot believe that his son is old enough to have reached a judicious decision on his life work. John is determined to attend an agricultural school. But his father opposes the boy until John uncovers the skullduggery of Silas, their crippled cook, who has been stealing their logs. With episodes of fire-fighting and a close call with a cougar, there is valid rendering here of the Puget Sound logging country and a balanced presentation of the apron-strong snipping in one Northwestern family.
