WINDIGO by Kathrene Pinkerton

Email this review


A thrilling tale of Indian terror, superstition and savagery, loaded by unscrupulous white craftiness to deeds of violence. The white trapper, aware of the Indian hunters' terror of Windigo, a spirit that drives the hunter to cannibalism and forces the tribe to kill him themselves, tries to set loose panic in an area run by sympathetic whites Four young friends, determined to save the victim of tribal law and custom, set out on a hunt through a snow storm, and encounter various adventures before the eventual success of their mission. A good yarn, with competent characterization in Indian and whites; natural background colorful and exciting; good feeling for the Indians and the problems of the American administrators.
