To escape worries over the separation, Jill sticks close to her life-long friend Migan, also 14. The girls court danger, destroying the traps set by cruel Jim McCullough around a beaver pond, a sanctuary deep in the woods.

A broken arm immobilizes Migan but Ryan, a boy Jill has seen at her school in the city, arrives (conveniently) to ally himself with her on the beavers side. The storys climax is an explosion caused by a drunk, not the feared trapper, and the result is tragic. Contrivances and digressions notwithstanding, the novel stands out as a drama and a timely treatment of major environmental issues.
