KIRKUS REVIEW

A dramatic beginning- the death of a dog--and a tense conclusion- the solution to a boy's disappearance--frame a convincing picture of the Montana wilderness. Mr. Brighton with his sixteen-year-old son George persuade Ted Holland and his step-father to guide them through Trouble Creek country in search of his older son who had disappeared on a hunting trip with George. Silent and moody, George reveals the startling evidence he has held back, and the tense search ends abruptly. Solid mystery, realistically plotted by the author of Chip on his Shoulder (1961, p. 167, J-95).
