The Danger Trail & Nomads of the North (James Oliver Curwood: American Adventure Classics #4)
Danger Trail (1910)
Jack Howland is a Chicago hustler. But for 15 of his 31 years he’s hoped for an opportunity to turn things around. That opportunity may have arrived. Howland is put in charge of one of the wildest jobs he could imagine. He and his team are to build a railway by laying a single line of steel through 3,000 miles of North American outback. His efforts would be focused on this God-forsaken place known as Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, in icy cold Canada -- the last outpost of civilisation. But despite his trepidation, Howland could feel the romantic, adventurous nature of the forbidding landscape. He was prepared to rise to the challenge. His motto? Do it or bust!
Nomads of the North (1919)
Buck McDougall convinces Nanette that her fiance is dead, and she consents to marrying Buck instead. Raoul appears at the ceremony just before they wed, however, and Raoul and Nanette flee into the Canadian wilderness, Buck asks Corporal O'Connor to follow their trail. He too has feelings for Nanette and fears she may have been kidnapped.
