231 pp, 7 7/8" H. Dust jacket design by William Stobbs. B&w drawings. "Bari, a half-breed boy of the North American Indian country, has two driving passions: his love of the wild animals of his home in Northern Ontario, and his great urge to draw them. In these he is encouraged by Paddy, the friendly trapper who brings him up from the age of nine. But it is only after going unwillingly to school and then learning that success does not come without work and hardship that Bari eventually begins to see ahead of him the life on an artist which he had dreamed about for so long. Miss Carruthers taught for many years in a school for Indians in the Canadian bushland. She is a natural storyteller, and (this book) reflects vividly her profound knowledge and affection for the Indians and the wild life of the country." First published in 1952 and, therefore, a product of its times as regards certain references and viewpoints. Tiny foxing mark on front board, a few tiny dents on bottom edge of boards and text block, three tiny corner bumps. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.
