About the Book A boy´s adventures in the upper Ottawa valley in a small railway town set in the early twentieth century focusing on Hallowe´en. Hallowe´en was coming. Jim´s school was planning a big Hallowe´en party. Students from the youngest to the oldest were involved in the planning. But in the community during the dark autumn nights other plans were being made, into which Jim was being reluctantly drawn. That autumn was not all just Hallowe´en - a trip into town on the local train, a weekend at a trapper´s cabin, a fishing afternoon, and bears, reflected life as it was lived by 13- year- old Jim in his 1920s railway village.
