SummaryAdd a Summary
“The animal responsible for the huge prints had been here very recently. “Don’t move” said George suddenly. Webb looked up the trail and saw it. The grizzly.” Seventeen-year old Webb survives on the streets of Toronto by busking with his guitar and working as a dishwasher. When he undertakes to solve a fifty-year-old mystery, as requested in his beloved grandfather’s will, he finds himself hiking on the isolated Canol Trail in the Canadian far north wilderness with a native guide, two German tourists and his guitar. There’s danger at every turn: grizzlies, wolves, the cold and deep, fast-flowing rivers. However, it doesn’t take long for Webb to discover that the greatest danger isn’t a grizzly or a wolf … it’s a man. Readers will sympathize with Webb - an imperfect but likeable protagonist – in this suspenseful, fast-paced survival story full of danger, adventure, intrigue and the unexpected. The conclusion is fitting and believable. Devil’s Pass is one title in a new series entitled Seven the Series. Written by seven different well-known Canadian authors, such as Shane Peacock, John Wilson and Eric Walters, the books are well-written and can be read in any order. (The stories – each featuring one of the seven grandsons of David McLean - happen simultaneously and separately from one another, but all seven are linked.) The Seven the Series adventures are already proving to be quite popular with older elementary and younger high school readers, especially boys.
