The Snow-Burner by Henry Oyen is a gripping tale of survival and revenge set in the harsh Alaskan wilderness. The protagonist, Jack, is a seasoned trapper who is forced to confront his past when a group of criminals threaten his way of life.

The tension builds steadily throughout the story, as Jack must outwit and outmaneuver his adversaries in order to protect his land and his livelihood.

What sets The Snow-Burner apart is its exploration of themes of redemption and forgiveness. Jack is a complex and flawed character, haunted by his past mistakes and struggling to find a way forward. As he navigates the dangerous terrain of the Alaskan wilderness, he must also confront his inner demons and come to terms with the darkness within himself.

Book Description:
The Snow-Burner is what the Native Americans called Reivers, and it was a rough and tumble life in the land where Reivers chose to live up to his name. The name was attributed to Reivers upon his proof after arriving in the north country because of his ability to defeat all perceived enemies in whatever means was necessary; whether by brute force and tough action, or by sheer cunning which he had gained living in the city in his earlier days. When assigned to oversee a group of foreigners in a work camp, he treated them with utter cruelty. When in search of an unknown source of gold, he found it necessary to combine his cunning with his forceful ways, proving his worthiness of the title given him. (Introduction by Roger Melin)
