The Masterman

By: Max Brand

From the Publisher Riley Doc Oliver, a fugitive, has been trapping and surviving on Candy Creek in Alaska for nine years. His only friend is Bob Melville, another fugitive who works a gold claim. Melville's daughter, in Alaska looking for her father, hasn't found him. But the solitude of Candy Creek is disrupted with the arrival of Steve Christy, the man who framed Melville five years ago. Injured, he seeks refuge at Doc's cabin. Doc proposes a plan: Christy will get an hour's lead time, then Melville will begin pursuit. Three hours later, Doc himself will track Christy with a dog team led by his fabulous Wolf Husky, the Masterman.
