Panic grips the Landon kids and 13-year-old Nicky Milano as they realize they have been abandoned in the wilds of Alaska's Denali National Park. If someone doesn't find them soon, they will freeze to death. They never should have accepted a dogsled ride from a stranger, but he was wearing a Park Service uniform and seemed to know about the wolverine meeting their mother was attending. Why would he kidnap three kids and leave them to die?
As they huddle together against the cold, they hear a deafening roar. Avalanche! Suddenly, keeping warm is the least of their worries. Can they figure out a way to escape the thundering mass of snow, or will they be buried alive?
The Landons are in Alaska's Denali National Park and are joined by 13-year-old Nicky Milano. Jack, Ashley, and Nicky accept a dogsled ride from a man in a Park Service uniform. Deep in the frozen wilderness, the kids are stranded and are caught in an avalanche. Includes a park map.
