When Brunner’s family is killed by hunters, he treks across the snowy wilderness in search of a new home among the beavers of Lake Napachokee.



But nowhere is safe. Developers are bulldozing and dynamiting the lake to build a hotel, and all the animals are at risk. Yet – thought they are small – they are determined to resist the might of men and their deadly machines.



BRUNNER was originally published in 1994 as THE BATTLE FOR BEAVER LAKE.
