The Outlander

by Gil Adamson

Astray in the Canadian outback 19 year old Mary Boulton experiences murderous violence and revenge, but also kindness and love. Wrap up warm - the cold and the fear fairly leaps off the page.


At first, he had tried to find boots among the upturned feet of the dead, pulling off first one then another boot to test it against her foot, but they were all too big. Finally, he tried a pair of his own boots. When she had slipped the first one on her foot, she grinned. It fit perfectly. This seemed to her a terrible joke.
'What?' he'd said, but his face said he knew what. The dwarf and the woman, lucky miscreants, outlanders, errors that should not exist but lived on anyway.
