219 pages. With trap and goldpan - here are pages out of pioneer living, a true, human interest story of Depression years in the woods. Walk the lonely trap lines in the cold, stillness of winter when only the sound of snowshoes breaks the silence, count the pelts that mean the difference between food and no food, a happy Christmas of a bleak one; look over Earl Baity's shoulder as he pans out a prospective site for placering. The simply told account of a man and a woman and two small children who took their living day by day from Nature in the storied Cariboo country. Usual library markings. Well-worn. Binding intact.
