This is the original Gouache painting by Neville Dear.

John Scott is rescued by other servants of the Hudson Bay Company who worked out of the remote Fort Albany after getting lost in a snow storm.

He was a young bricklayer who had gone hunting with the fort's gunsmith. He was lucky to survive albeit with bad frostbite. The gunsmith Tom Tollier died in the frozen waste and his body was about to become a meal for a Grey Wolf when it was discovered.

Part of the series Outposts of the Empire this artwork was published in Look and Learn issue 580, 24th February 1973.
