Tisdale was silent. Her glance came back to him. A sudden emotion stirred her face. Then all the conservatism dropped from her like a discarded cloak, and he felt her intrepid spirit respond to his own. Now she understood that moment in the basin; she knew it had been supreme; she was great enough to see there was nothing to forgive. "You were right," she said, and her voice broke in those steadying pauses that carried more expression than any words. "Fate was with us again. But I owe-my life-to you."-from "Chapter XI: The Loophole"Explorer, frontier trailblazer, and quiet hero Hollis Tisdale "had spent some of the hardest years of his Alaska career in the service of the Government," but he faces perhaps his greatest challenge in this classic and much beloved novel of the Pacific Northwest.First published in 1915, this is the hale and hearty tale of Tisdale's exploits in remotest Alaska, traveling across glaciers and cold deserts, braving avalanches and nefarious mining magnates, and facing political intrigue over the rights to Alaska's coal... not to mention all the ladies arch and brave who cross his path.Written in a spry voice and keeping a lively pace, this delightful novel is sure to please fans of pulp fiction.OF INTEREST TO: readers of early-20th-century fiction, armchair adventurersADA WOODRUFF ANDERSON (b. 1860) is also the author of the novels The Heart of the Red Firs (1908) and The Strain of White (1909).

Excerpt from The Rim of the Desert The desert of this story is that semi-arid region east of the upper Columbia. It is cut off from the moisture laden winds of the Pacific by the lofty summits of the Cascade Mountains which form its western rim, and for many miles the great river crowds the barrier, winding, breaking in rapids, seeking a way through. To one approaching this rim from the dense forests of the westward slopes, the sage grown levels seem to stretch limitless into the far horizon, but they are broken by hidden coulees; in propitious seasons reclaimed areas have yielded phenominal crops of wheat, and under irrigation the valley of one of the two tributaries from the west, wherein lies Hesperides Vale, has become a garden spot of the world. To the initiated I wish to say if in the chapters touching on the Alaska coal cases I have followed too literally the statements of prominent men, it was not in an effort to portray them but merely to represent as clearly as possible the Alaska situation.

Part armchair travelogue, part guide book, this projected three-volume series—divided into the western, central, and eastern United States—will introduce readers to all 155 national forests across the country. This Land is the only comprehensive field guide that describes the natural features, wildernesses, scenic drives, campgrounds, and hiking trails of our national forests, many of which—while little known and sparsely visited—boast features as spectacular as those found in our national parks and monuments. Each entry includes logistical information about size and location, facilities, attractions, and associated wilderness areas. For about half of the forests, Robert H. Mohlenbrock has provided sidebars on the biological or geological highlights, drawn from the "This Land" column that he has written for Natural History magazine since 1984. Superbly illustrated with color photographs, botanical drawings, and maps, this book is loaded with information, clearly written, and easy to use. This volume covers national forests in: Alaska, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, California, Utah, Idaho, Washington
