Book Excerpt: 
. . .I've seen them go 'outside,' old beyond their years, half-blind with snow-blindness, or worse; broken in body and spirit. I only hope it does not happen to him. But what's all the mystery, I'd like to know?"

She gave a sudden start. For the first time she realized that he had not given her his name.

"And I promised to personally conduct that mysterious mail of his!" she exclaimed under her breath.


Two months had elapsed since the mysterious college boy had passed on north with his dog-team.

Many things could have happened to him in those months. As Marian sat looking away at the vast expanse of drifting ice which had been restless in its movements of late, telling of the coming of the spring break-up, she wondered what had happened to the frank-eyed, friendly boy.

of course i loved this charming story...mystery adventure and exotic places but most of all i loved it because it was written by my grandfather....He actually wrote more like 84 books of which only a few are listed here.

This book, an oldie that had that quality of innocence, yet so much high adventure--would two teenage girls really, honestly be alone in that environment in those days? Beyond the fact that I don't really think so, I'd like to think maybe I'm wrong :-)

I found this girls’ adventure book to be delightful! Marion and Lucille are teenage cousins who have spent most of their lives in rugged outdoor activities.

Set mainly in the Alaskan wilderness in the early 1920s, two girls of about eighteen spend a winter there alone, one as a schoolteacher; the other an artist, making drawings of t

A very good book this was indeed!
Two girl cousins- Lucile and Marian- embark on an adventure to Siberia so Marian can paint the natives and thus earn money by selling her sketches and paintings to attend a professional art school.
Vivid descriptions are drawn throughout of the vast ice-covered bodie

The only real disappointment I had with this book was how quickly and abruptly it ended; we went from 60 to 0 in about three pages.
