A novel by

 
This children's book was published in 1906.

Excerpts from the book:

"ARK!"

A low, wailing sound came faintly
through the forest of oaks and pines,
and borne on the wintry air, reached the ears
of the two brothers who, on this moonlight
night many years ago, were gliding swiftly
over the gleaming surface of the Kennebec, on
their ringing skates, which had already carried
them full ten miles from their home.

It was Clarence Landon, the elder, who had
uttered the exclamation that arrested the laugh-
ter and conversation of himself and Sydney.

On the instant they ceased striking out, and
the rasping whir of the keen-edged steel grew
softer and still softer, until the two came to a
stand, side by side.

Still they spoke not, but stood looking and
listening.

It was mid-winter, and the ice over which
they were skating was fully a foot in thickness,
and the surface was like that of a mirror.
..............................................................................

Sydney Landon was slowly moving over
the ice, on this moonlight night, when he
suddenly paused, as he caught a gleam
among the trees on his left.

It was a pale, steady glow, and did not seem
to be a great distance away.

Of course any number of conjectures rose in
his mind as to what it meant; but he believed it
came from the camp-fire of some party, and
whether friend or foe remained to be seen.

Somehow or other, he held strong hope of
finding friends here, and hesitating but a mo-
ment or two, started ashore and moved toward
it.

About the author:

Edward S. Ellis, the popular writer of boys' books, is
a native of Ohio, where he was born somewhat more
than a half-century ago. His father was a famous
hunter and rifle shot, and it was doubtless his exploits
and those of his associates, with their tales of adven-
ture which gave the son his taste for the breezy back-
woods and for depicting the stirring life of the early
settlers on the frontier.
