A fact-filled and accurate view of "the life of early settlers on the Canadian prairie," weaving a wealth of historic detail into a story that would be especially enjoyable to boys. This novel tells of the life of Charlie Sutherland, a "home boy". Charlie, 16, is sent from England to work on the farm of two brothers, Buck and Albert Brooks. It is a hard and bitter life in the Territories, near Pincher Creek, and the Brooks brothers are not likeable or easy to live and work with. Charlie is beaten, fed little and clothed in rags, but he is alive; however, he is indentured to the Brooks brothers for some time yet. Suddenly, Charlie's world is turned upside down. He faces challenges in this fierce land that would be daunting to an adult, and he must learn to survive, with or without the help of others.
