The Lost Trapper

Once there, it took them several more days to find the trapper. He had died of a heart attack while chopping wood and his body had been covered by drifting snow. They dug a hole in the frozen earth and buried him. They then set out for the coast so that the constable could catch the steam ship from Kincolith. It was February and extremely cold. By the time they got to Red Bluff they had run out of food.
