"Eerie shadows of the big woods, concealing unknown dangers: clear lakes and glistening pines, beconing the outdoorsman-these are the twofold background of the Jeff White stories. Young Jeff himself, skilled woodsman, straight shooter, daring, ambitious to become a warden in the Inland Fish and Game Service, is the kind of boy anyone would be proud to know. So is his friend Skip Doggett, except that Skip is so funny that sometimes you forget his all-around dependability. Now, Jeff goes with Link Gilbert, flying warden, to make a beaver survey. They find more than beaver. Evil is loose again in the forest, and Jeff is to have a chance to prove once more that Warden Hibbs has well nicknamed him "Tracker." But the man hunt is complicated by a raging fire which brings into action the full force of the remarkable Forest Service organization, plus the game wardens, who are also fire wardens in times of emergency. Their combined smooth functioning in the face of what seems deadly odds is breathtaking to read about...
