FACING

Shag carried the Dog wolf on his back Title

“Lying on my back as though I were dead, I held my tail straight up” 6

“I am no Wolf, Shag; I am A’tim, which meaneth a Dog in the talk of the Crees” 10

One after another they hurtled into the slaughter pen of the Blood Indians’ corral 36

Muskwa had A’tim in his long clawed grasp 66

“Steady, Dog Wolf, steady,” admonished Shag, “this is a friend of mine” 78

“Oh, don’t mention it!” exclaimed the Wolf; “no doubt we shall find something for dinner, presently” 114

“Thou art a traitor, and a great liar,” said the Bull 136

THE OUTCASTS

CHAPTER ONE

A’tim the Outcast was half Wolf, half Huskie Dog. That meant ferocity and bloodthirst on the one side, and knowledge of Man’s ways on the other. Also, that he was an Outcast; for neither side of the house of his ancestry would have aught of him.

A’tim was bred in the far Northland, where the Cree Indians trail the white snow waste with Train Dogs; and one time A’tim had pressed an unwilling shoulder to a dog collar. Now he was an outcast vagabond on the southern prairie, close to the Montana border land.

It was September; and all day A’tim had skulked in the willow cover of Belly River flat lands, close to the lodges of the Blood Indians.

Nothing to eat had come the way of the Dog Wolf; only a little knowledge of something that was to happen, for he had heard things, the voices of the Indians sitting in council had slipped gently down the wind to his sharp Wolf ears.
