Description: “‘It may come as a shock, Miss Pickerell,’ said the pilot, ‘but we may not be able to reach the air base after all.’
What is Miss Pickerell doing deep in the arctic, in a cargo plane that is running out of gas? Thousands of miles, too, from her favorite cow and her niece and nephew- and their short-wave radio.
And what if they have to make a forced landing NOW, on the very edge of the Arctic Ocean? Never fear! Miss Pickerell– and her umbrella- are here!” (From the back cover)
