Description:

Hector Blackburn was the last of the powerful free traders to hold sway in the Canadian Northwest, and when sudden death claimed him, his vast holdings fell into the unprotected hands of Loseis, his eighteen-year-old daughter. His enemy, a villainous rival trader, hastens to the dead Blackburn's post where, under pretense of befriending the girl, he attempts to seize control of the whole works. But his base designs are balked by Loseis and her sweetheart, a young government geologist. The action is of the stand-up, give-and-take, nothing-barred variety, one side gaining a little ground, only to lose it again to the other, and for such as the tale professes to be, it should pass muster.

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert

Author Image

Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.

His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
