|Plot Summary of A River of Seasons|
In Northern Minnesota's Bigfork River Valley, back in the days of the big timber camps, a man by the name of Wil
Morgan and his wife raise a pair of orphaned kids, bringing them to adulthood. Wil tells of his life on the Bigfork and his time working in the timber camps. He was a hunter and a trapper, and as a long-time resident had many tales to tell.
The children's family was lost when a Canadian jack named Scooter Sherman, a man with no reverence for life, burned down their cabin in the middle of the night. He kills the parents and a small baby just to get revenge for his losses at a poker game.
The book tells of the successes and failures of good, hardworking people and the trail to bring a bad man to justice.
