Written by Ann Walsh, By the Skin of His Teeth: A Barkerville Mystery is a historical novel set in Barkerville, British Columbia, during the year 1870. When a Chinese man is found stabbed to death outside his restaurant, only a young Chinese boy can testify against the prideful and cruel accused perpetrator. Seventeen-year-old Ted MacIntosh befriends the boy, helping him stand up for justice while the Chinese community is scared into silence. Ted and the boy fight to bring the truth to trial, with lives and the future of the community hanging in the balance. A gripping, suspenseful drama; also recommended are the previous novels about Ted MacIntosh, "Moses, Me and Murder" and "The Doctor's Apprentice."
