Out of the night came Jan and into the lives of all those at the
company post on Lac Bain, in the Canadian Northland. Jan, almost
starved and frozen, enters into the lives of John Cummins and
Melisse, his daughter, playing his violin for food. He stays to
become a beloved member of their family and the community. But Jan
has a deep mystery about his past that haunts him. When a stranger
shows up at the camp, this hidden past is threatened exposure.
Jan's mystery unravels as he faces life at the remote outpost
during the early 1900s, a smallpox outbreak at the camp, and his
love for little Melisse. It is the Honor of the Big Snows, part of
his heritage, that Jan must keep, and that leads him to leave the
post searching for his honor in his past. The Honor of the Big
Snows by James Oliver Curwood deals with a complex and unorthodox
story around Jan. Even today, many people will identify with Jan
and his search for his honor.
