256 pp, 8vo (8" H). Greenhill Books' Vintage Crime Classics series. "Near six foot tall, lithe and powerful, November Joe is a Canadian woodsman who would sooner hunt deer than man any day. In these stories of detection, set in the wilderness far away from city streets, November Joe shows that he is not only the product but also the master of his environment. The author was a sportsman and naturalist who spent much of his life travelling and hunting, and used his own experiences and wilderness lore as background for this book. First published before the outbreak of World War One (during which Prichard organized a corps of sharp-shooters), these stories capture the clear, crisp outdoor atmosphere of the North-American backwoods. 'November Joe' is recommended in 'Queen's Quorum' as one of the 106 most important detective-crime story books published." Contents: Preface; Sir Andrew's Advice; November Joe; The Crime at Big Tree Portage; The Seven Lumber-Jacks; The Black Fox Skin; The Murder at the Duck Club; The Case of Miss Virginia Planx; The Hundred Thousand Dollar Robbery; The Looted Island; The Mystery of Fletcher Buckman; Linda Petersham; Kalmacks; The Men of the Mountains; The Man in the Black Hat; The Capture; The City or the Woods? Very light fading at bottom edge of spine. Dust jacket has light creasing at top edge of flaps.
