From the Publisher:

Sequel to "Toughboy and Sister."
Annotation:
Recently orphaned Athabascan Indians, Toughboy, 12, and Sister, ten, are living with Natasha, the eldest widow in the tribe. Aged and cranky, Natasha believes in the old ways, and teaches them to the children, including a two-week camping and trapping trip in the middle of winter. When an old miner friend is seriously injured by a moose, Natasha leaves him in the children's care and goes off by dog sled to get help, leaving Toughboy and Sister to survive the grueling cold on their own.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The portrayal of these competent, courageous children battling the intense cold is compelling."

Booklist
"This is one adventure youngsters won't put down until they finish."

School Library Journal
"Hill's description of life and work at the camp is straight forward and unsentimental, a blend of beauty and blunt reality...A spare but compelling story of survival and the growth of two very resilient but sensitive children."
