Description

As a storm looms in the prairie sky, a boy must ride out to find his wayward younger brother, Will. He dons his red serge coat and stetson hat, saddles up and begins the search. ""You can't hide from a Mountie,"" he calls, but Will roams far, eluding him as the storm closes in. The storm threatens, the older boy searches, confident and determined, the younger boy wanders, oblivious to all but his own delight.
