It is the most unforgettable tale of Punch, the most famous of sleigh dogs of fur-trading posts along the Mackenzie River from the Rockies to the Arctic; of the cold barren country he grew up in; of the men who tried to break him. Part Husky, part wolf he was considered a king among northern dogs. Punch went through a number of owners and adventures before he came across Rory Leigh who helped him adapt to the ways of man without breaking him. Conibear, renowned for his stories of men and animals who conquered their fear and learned to survive in the northwestern wilderness, grew up in said wilderness where his father ran a supply steamer for a fur-trading company along the Mackenzie River and the Arctic Ocean. Here he learned all the skills his protagonists needed and all the facts he needed to write realistic stories.
