The warmth of Christmas Day fades into the dreaded fact that Papa Nordstrom must return to his dangerous work in the logging camp. Then wolves howl at night, and a valuable ring disappears. Unable to make a big payment, Kate’s special friend Josie and her family face the possible loss of their farm. Suspicions point to one person, but is he really guilty? Is it the same person who sneaks into the Windy Hill barn to take Wildfire for nighttime rides? As Anders and Kate try to find the truth, shadowy figures appear. What is real and what is imagination? And how does Kate’s choice change someone else’s life?
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."
