"Although Lukey Paul, of Rattling Tickle on the Labrador coast, was only a ten-year-old boy, he had a man's trading job to do in the summer of 1893, after the fishing-fleet came up from Newfoundland. A silver-fox skin, the catch of a lifetime was under Uncle 'Lige's bunk in their cabin. Traded at Hopedale, the skin meant a winter's supply of food.

Lukey became a stowaway to reach Hopedale with the silver skin, hiding on Dr. Wilfred Grenfell's steamer Princess May. But in town he was tricked and robbed of the skin by a cheating trader. Lukey Paul went north aboard the doctor's ship, searching for the thief while Dr. Will made his calls. Up past Kiglapait Mountains they staemed, past Saglek Fjord, Mount Blow-me-down, and Cape White Handkerchief. Never did a boy so young have so many adventures, or learn so much, as Lukey Paul did on that trip. In the end he discovered something better than a silver-fox skin "something that bought his winter's supply and made others happy also. - from the jacket [NOTE : the jacket is not present with this copy]
