Summary: With thick smoke in his throat and the roar of flame in his ears, Pete Noël awoke, shaking as if in the grip of a nightmare. He sat straight up in his bunk. Instantly he felt his face scorching. The whole cabin was ablaze. Leaping from his bunk, and dragging the blankets with him, he sprang to the door, tore it open, and rushed out into the snow.But being a woodsman, and alert in every sense like the creatures of the wild themselves, his wits were awake almost before his body was, and his insti ...show morencts were even quicker than his wits.
