A LOADED GUN. STOLEN GOLD. And a menacing stranger. A taut frontier survivor story, set at the time of the Alaska gold rush.
In an isolated cabin, fourteen-year-old Sig is alone with a corpse: his father, who has fallen through the ice and frozen to death only hours earlier.

The question is, will Sig use the gun, and why?   Revolver is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
