My book was an original published in and each page fell from the binding as I turned it making a mess making its reading even more annoying to me.

Black Rock a Tale of the Selkirks by Ralph Connor
The men of the book are still there in the mines and lumber camps of the mountains, fighting out that eternal fight for manhood, strong, clean, God conquered. And, when the west winds blow, to the open ear the sounds of battle come, telling the fortunes of the fight. Because a man's life is all he has, and because the only hope of the brave young West lies in its men, this story is told.
It may be that the tragic pity of a broken life may move some to pray, and that that divine power there is in a single brave heart to summon forth hope and courage may move some to fight. If so, the tale is not told in vain. It had been my plan to spend my Christmas far away in Toronto, with such Bohemian and boon companions as could be found in that cosmopolitan and kindly city.
But Leslie Graeme changed all that, for, discovering me in the village of Black Rock, with my traps all packed, waiting for the stage to start for the Landing, thirty miles away, he bore down upon me with resistless force, and I found myself recovering from my surprise only after we had gone in his lumber sleigh some six miles on our way to his camp up in the mountains
