Dogs of the Captain
A Western StoryLarge Print - 2012
The house on the hill in Merridan belonged to Captain Slocum. It was regarded as a house of mystery, and it was protected by dogs that ran the grounds at night and armed men who allowed no visitors, even when the captain was away from the house, which he often was. Don Grier was just a boy when he braved the terrors of the captain's domain to steal a watermelon - a feat that made him a local hero. When Don's father was hanged for killing his own brother in a mining camp, Don was devastated. Sure that his father was innocent and that the charges against him were trumped up, thirteen-year-old Don decides to clear his father's name. Don will have to go to Chalmer's Creek, where the murder occurred, to learn the truth. His mentor is none other than the man who guarded the captain's house on the hill - a man who is somehow enslaved to the captain. When he finally arrives at Chalmer?s Creek, Don Grier will become both the hunter and the hunted...
