Pp (4),v-vi,(6),1-210,(2), frontispiece + 3 plates. 8vo, pale blue cloth black lettering to spine. "To a frontier cabin in the far, lonely reaches of the great Northwest crept an Indian squaw, pursued by the hostile braves o the dreaded Snake tribe. When she slipped back into the forest, to whatever savage fate awaited her at the hands of her enemies, she left behind her, on the cabin doorstep, her half-Indian, half-white baby. And so Gimmery came to the Taggarts and grew up in the white settlement, in ignorance of his redskin heritage. Eventually, the boy made the acquaintance of the old Indian woman, Sequoia, and defended her against the suspicious enmity of the community. Through her, he met the fabled wolf man who was first presented to delighted young readers by Olaf Baker in his popular book, Shasta of the Wolves. The two shared many thrilling adventures together after Gimmery became involved in the theft of Sequoia's medicine bundle. Half-fact, half-fantasy, this story contains all the favorite ingredients of magic and mystery and animal lore that Olaf Baker knows so well how to blend." (from the dj).
