Through the pages of this book stalks the mightiest of the wilderness villains, a freebooter and a bully, a bandit who knows nothing of fear. Kin to the weasel, Carcajou the wolverine has the weasel's strength and cunning one hundred times multiplied. Rutherford Montgomery tells what happens when Carcajou, the unconquerable, tangles with a young Indian trapper and his pet grizzly bear.

This simply written book is about the mystique of the dark spirit of the forest, as understood in centuries past.
I lost the old book, and have been looking for it since.
Carcajou is the spirit of
the wild itself, less an animal and more a natural force.
It reminded me of Jack London, among others.
Now that I am a published author several times over, the books that brought magic to my experience are sacred treasure.
--Christian Shreve (author of Blaze, the Tale of Pyrotempest, and MoneyBoxing).
