The Red River Settlement is home to many Indians, French-Canadians, and Scotsmen. Charlie Kennedy lives at Red River with his ex fur-trader father. In an attempt to convince Charlie to lead a more sensible life than he did, his father fills Charlie's mind with stories of his dangerous past life, but the adventure only draws Charlie in. Based on Ballantyne's own experiences, this novel details Charlie's encounters with voyagers, Indians, and the intrepid Jacques Caradoc. Lively prose and makes this novel perfect for fans of Rudyard Kipling's 'The Jungle Book.' Robert Michael Ballantyne (1825 - 1894) was a Scottish author. Born into a family of famous printers and publishers, his expertise was juvenile fiction, and he wrote over 100 hugely successful books in this genre. The most notable of these include ‘The Coral Island’, ‘The Eagle Cliff’, and ‘The Gorilla Hunters’. Famed for his tendency to fully immerse himself into the environment of whichever story he was working on, his lively prose is unmissable for those who enjoyed Matt Haig’s ‘The Midnight Library’.Robert Michael Ballantyne (1825 - 1894) was a Scottish author.

Ballantyne draws on his experiences as a clerk with the Hudson Bay Company to form the basis for this story in which he describes the lives of fur traders in the northern Canadian territories. The tale begins in the middle of winter and follows traders Charley, Harry and Hamilton (and their friends) as they learn the tricks of the fur trade and travel as fur trappers and emissaries to Native American tribes. As usual, Ballantyne includes a romantic aspect and fills his story with good humor. Snowflakes and Sunbeams combines the informative nature of Hudson's Bay with a complete cast of true and endearing characters.
