Dog Island from Devonshire Beach on Lesser Slave Lake

Would you know how to survive a blizzard on a frozen island in the middle of a large lake? Add to this a crashed snowmobile and a step brother with a broken leg. This is just one of the dilemmas facing fourteen year old Raymond. No one will come looking for them because Raymond told his parents they were going to the Wilderness Camp on the south shore of the Lake. Going to Dog Island was a forbidden detour to look for his Aboriginal grandfather, who went missing on the island. Will Raymond go missing like his grandfather?

The Mysterious Dog Island

The story involves Raymond, an Aboriginal boy, torn between two cultures, humorous anecdotes from a blended white and Aboriginal family situation, a snowmobile camping trip that ends in a serious crash, winter survival, and a mysterious dog sled ride with a team of phantom huskies.

Now, hurtling completely out of control, the snowmobile hit a second, gigantic, ice ridge with a loud, shattering explosion, sending pieces of ice and machine in every direction, while catapulting its riders through the air like rag dolls in a tornado.
