Animal and nature background for a story of an enormous ram that became leader of the flock in a picturesque sequestered island in the Alaskan mountain ranges. Sandy, an idealistic prospector who placed gold second to his love for the peace and quiet of the country, is the chief human figure in a drama that is almost wholly that of the Alaska White Mountain sheep. battles with wolves, bitter winters, the of the human enemy -- those are high spots in the life cycle of Sandy. McCracken knows the region and the wild creatures of whom he writes so feelingly. True nature adventure.
