Tracks in the Snow: Wilderness Simile
by Margit Suesser
Jack OBryan knows he needs to support his family. His carpentry work and fur sales barely support his wife and two girls, and he has another child on the way. Jack braves the Alaskan winter to head to the trading post in the hopes that he can purchase a sled and dogs for the upcoming race. With a three thousand dollar prize, this could turn their lives around.
Meanwhile, Isabelle, Jacks pregnant wife, has her own worries at home. There are strange tracks by their home, and the nearby Indians are warning her of a bear in the area. Will she be able to keep her family safe?
Sled races and bears are only the first of many struggles for the OBryan family. Explore the wild world of Alaskan wilderness with this family, as each move is aimed at survival.
