About the Book

The Call of the Yukon is comprised of two stories, both set in the late 1800’s in the wilderness of Canada’s far north. Rudy is the heart-warming story of a wolf cub abandoned by its mother, who is rescued from sure death when found by an Indigenous man named Steward. Initially rejected by Steward’s sled dogs, Rudy grows into a strong animal the team learns to fear, eventually becoming the alpha male. Rudy’s leadership is demonstrated during the annual Dawson City dogsled race, a high-spirited competition. This is a wilderness tale of a wolf who learns to place his trust in one man, until the call of the wild eventually beckons him to return to the forests of the Yukon, where he belongs. Quest for Gold and Fur is a fascinating tale about a young couple and their life together in the Yukon wilderness. Joe and Mary share their adventures in this heart-warming tale of survival in their adopted forest community. Read about how Rudy’s short life ended after he followed his heart and returned to the wild. Experience an encounter between a black bear and a wolverine, fighting over who is going to eat Joe and Mary’s pack animal. Follow the couple as they find riches hidden by old trappers in the most unlikely places. These two stories depict the courage and bravery of early fur-trappers in Canada’s north, which will not to be easily forgotten by its readers.
