Full of anticipation, Kate and her family wait for her grandpa and grandma from Sweden to arrive on the train. When the Blueberry Special comes in, and the last passenger steps from the train, Grandpa and Grandma are nowhere in sight. After Papa Nordstrom leaves to search for them in St. Paul, a telegram arrives in the middle of the night. "We are in Duluth," Grandpa says. "But Mama is lost." Grandma lost? When Kate, Anders, and Erik rush to Duluth, they discover that Grandma is not simply lost—someone has stolen her away! Can the three friends be wise in God's leading and find and rescue Grandma?
Best-selling novels set in the early 1900's in Minnesota, northwest Wisconsin, and Michigan, these compelling, historically accurate stories attract reluctant, average, and gifted readers. Both boys and girls identify with characters who face danger and mystery while learning to deal with peer pressure, family relationships, and the need for unconditional love and forgiveness.
"In her Northwoods Adventures, Lois Walfrid Johnson blends regional history, positive values, and engaging characters with mystery to boot. The same blend occurs in the Riverboat series, making the Underground Railroad very real to young readers. Our family gathered around and read each of her books aloud."
