KIRKUS REVIEW

This is another story of the six Billings children on their farm at Buck-horn in the Canadian backwoods. In addition to a Hallowe'en husking bee and the advent of suspicious strangers there is a mystery surrounding a ""ghost wolf"" and an Indian treasure cave. It is Lucy, her elder brother and her little Indian friend who catch and kill the albino wolf and find the Treasure Cave, thus bringing better fortune to the Indians of the reservation. In spite of setting and plot, the telling of the story is dull and pr. One feels little concern over the shoeless plight of the young illings for they never come completely to life. Where the other book has been liked this would probably find an audience, but there are many backwoods stories for children which are far more vital and interesting than this.
