So there King of mazy may not shooting just then. Faith, it's an ilegant chanst to be getting' a run fer yer money! He was almost breathless with suspense, when it finally righted with a bound and sprang ahead again. Almost as quick as it takes to tell it, Loren had his sleeping-furs rolled up, and had joined Walt on the sled.

The proper lead-dog was now to the fore, and he stretched low to the trail and whined with joy as he jerked his comrades along.

Loren Hall had struck it rich, and his claim was not yet recorded. I put a cloze sentence under the document camera that says, "Walt Masters is the protagonist of the story. Looking back he could see the sled of his pursuers, drawn by eight dogs, rising and falling over the ice hummocks like a boat in a seaway.

And because of what Walt Masters did on this night, the men of the Yukon have become very proud of him, and always speak of him now as the King of Mazy May. The bad thing about it is that the kids can zone out. Realizing how necessary it was to have a good head-dog, he strove to discover a leader amongst them; but he had little time in which to do it, for he could hear the voices of the returning men.

What do you say? On account of the poor lead-dog, they were constantly floundering off the beaten track into the soft snow, and the sled was as often riding on its side or top as it was in the proper way. So it is not to be wondered at that the black-bearded leader did not hit him.

Gaining the camp, he picked out, with an experienced eye, the easiest running sled and started to harness up the stampeders' dogs. The story goes into depth about how Walt Masters grew up in the harsh conditions and how he had never had shoes just moccasins, and how he had never been to school, etc.

So it is not to be wondered at that the black-bearded leader did not hit him. He was only a boy, but in the face of the threatened injustice against old lame Loren Hall he felt that he must do something. The dogs sprang against the yoke-straps, and the sled jerked under way so suddenly as to almost throw him off.

This brought the whole team into a snarl, capsizing the sled and tangling his enemies up beautifully. Walt was born a thousand miles or so down the Yukon, in a trading post below the Ramparts. The other sled was coming up like an express-train.

Looking back he could see the sled of his pursuers, drawn by eight dogs, rising and falling over the ice hummocks like a boat in a seaway. Striking on the very rear of it, he was thrown from his feet, backward, into the snow.

In the afternoon, with Walt always trailing on their heels, they came back down on the creek, unharnessed their dogs, and went into camp within two claims of his cabin.

But with the news of their discoveries, strange men began to come and go through the short days and long nights, and many unjust things they did to the men who had worked so long upon the creek.

An' if ye don't run, it's mebbe you'll not get the money at all, at all. However, many of my students said that the harsh conditions were more threatening.

Away Walt flew, the runners of his sled fairly screaming as they bounded over the frozen surface. By the time he reached Ainslie's Creek, seventeen miles from Dawson, Walt had left his pursuers, a tiny speck, far behind.

He had now discovered the proper lead-dog, and he knew he could easily run away from them if he could only change the bad leader for the good one.

And because of what Walt Masters did on this night, the men of the Yukon have become very proud of him, and always speak of him now as the King of Mazy May.

His father is a good man, strong and brave, and Walt is growing up like him. Walt was well able to stay by himself in the cabin, cook his three meals a day, and look after things.

When he got off the mouth of Rosebud Creek, just as he was topping a rise, the ping of a bullet on the King of mazy may beside him, and the report of a gun, told him that they were this time shooting at him with a rifle.

They took greater care, and only whipped a shot at him at the most favorable opportunities. There was not a sound, save the breathing of the dogs, and the churn of the steel-shod sled. After he had been gone some time, word came up the river that he had broken through the ice at Rosebud Creek, and frozen his feet so badly that he would not be able to travel for a couple of weeks.

London also describes his decision-making and fast thinking when dealing with the sled dogs. Then it curved into the creek, poising perilously on one runner.

Night fell, and in the blackness of the first hour or so, Walt toiled desperately with his dogs. At Monte Cristo Island, he could no longer see them.
