Drew, Lawmen in Scarlet : An Annotated Guide to Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Print and Performance. p.65. "I think it was when that the first chill ran through me, the first sense of unease. It seemed unnatural, the mountains round watchful and white, an alien world from which all life had been expunged by the onset of winter. The sun had a faint halo round it, the air getting colder, and Istarted walking fast, up over the divide eparating the Stone Slide waters from Ice Cold....It is in this mood that Philip Redfern, a young solicitor,finally reaches hi objective - a gold mine in the Yukon belonging to a cli ent who suddenly changed his Will and disappeared.The shadow of an old goldruh is always there, the trail leading down the notorious Whitehoues Pass to the coast, down the Alaskan Panhandle, deep into the Rokies to a modern ghost town and the Halliday Arm. And in the Halliday Arm is a tug towing a barge-load of cedar logs with the Halliday curse on it. High Stand is a world apart, the sort of story nobody but Hammond Innes writes." (from the dj).
