Description:

Unlike most of Stringer's work, it is set in northern Canada. A spoiled only daughter of a wealthy father is banished by her parent away from the bright lights. This young flapper nearly drowns in a canoe, but is saved by one Shomer Grimshaw, a young timber engineer. The two end up on a remote island with only the clothes they are wearing, and must battle the elements to survive. Naturally their affections for one another grow perforce with the struggle, and produced what the dust jacket pronounced "an absorbing romance that is sure to prove enjoyable."

Author Bio for Stringer, Arthur

Author Image

Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.

He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.

Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)). He even wrote early science fiction novels, The Story Without a Name (1924) with Russell Holman, and The Woman Who Couldn't Die (1929).

Much of his writing was for films. Film scripts on which he worked include The Perils Of Pauline (1914), The Hand Of Peril (1916), The House Of Intrigue (1919), Unseeing Eyes (1923), Empty Hands (1924), The Canadian (1926), The Purchase Price (1932), The Lady Fights Back (1937), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and The Iron Claw (1941).--Wikipedia.
