Moose Maddon was as different from Cecil as it is possible
for two human beings to be and still stay within the species.
He was a big moose of a man, even for a lumber stiff, with a
round, flat, unshaven face that looked down angrily and dourly
at the world. Cecil on the other hand was hardly taller than
an axe handle, and almost as thin. He was about nineteen years
old, with the looks of an inquisitive sparrow behind his thick
horn-rimmed glasses. He had been sent out to the camp for the
summer months by a distant relative who had a connection with
head office down in Vancouver.
