Sixteen In Nome is narrated by young Joe May, an Arizonian who has come to Alaska to "make his stake for a ranch." Joe May, a starving, overgrown youth, had provided a small service for Hugh Massey, owner of the most famous husky in Alaska, in exchange for a monetary reward. He’d heard that Massey’s life revolved around the dog and it was a chance to murder the man he hated with an undying rage. But he never thought he would become the bait Massey needed to lure his enemy into a deadly trap. Highly recommended, especially for those who love the Old Western genre.
