"A story of the North country with Silver Chief leading the Huskies means thrills aplenty for every reader. T his third story in the series has an up-to-date, wartime angle that will give it added interest. Here is Jim Thorne of the Canadian Mounties back again with the heroic leader of the dogs of the North beside him! The story of their winter at Cameron River Post in the Hudson Bay country and their strange man-hunt makes one of the most exciting of O'Brien tales.
Bill MacDonald, Frank Blaine and his daughter Pat and Danny Hughes are just a few of the interesting people you'll meet in this outpost of the North American continent. Then there's French Pete, Tom Eagle's Nest, and two mysterious Nazis—Altogether an O'Brien combination that makes a fitting climax to this ever popular series. And as always Silver Chief comes through in a spectacular fashion. We aren't going to tell you a word of the story because it's the kind that will keep you guessing up to the very end. The illustrations by Kurt Wiese who created Silver Chief are as beautifully done as ever." (from the dj).
