Synopsis of Recorded Radio Drama

Two men spend several weeks in the remote parts of northern Canada searching for gold. They find gold and, weighted down by their gold dust and personal belongings, cross the tundra on their way home. While crossing a swift running stream, one man sprains his ankle and is deserted by his partner. The injured man has no food and no ammunition for his gun. He struggles with his sanity, animals, and the elements. To survive he eats raw minnows, baby birds, and water grass. Finally, in the distance, he sees a ship on a shining sea. The ship is several miles away and the man is very weak, too weak perhaps, to make the distance. He continues to move, slowly yet determinedly, toward the ship. At one point he comes across the bones of his partner, clean picked by a pack of wolves. On hands and knees now, he creeps on toward the ship. A sick wolf begins to follow him. Finally the man kills the wolf with his bare teeth, biting the wolf's throat and drinking the animal's blood. At last the men of the ship discover a Athing@ inching itself along the beach. The men of the ship investigate and discover it is the man. They take the man aboard the ship, and, after a few days, he is strong enough to tell his story.
