Thrilling adventure stories introducing young readers (ages 8-2) to Christian heroes of the past.As Adam Christian graduates from the famous Sitka Industrial and Training School, he dreams of one day becoming famous--like Dr. Sheldon Jackson, who started the school. The last thing Adam wants to do is return to his dull life in northern Alaska, so he asks Dr. Jackson if he can join him on his 897 expedition to the Yukon to rescue hundreds of starving gold miners. Surprisingly, Dr. Jackson agrees, and eager to say good-bye to his home and his people, Adam sets off on what he hopes will be the adventure of a lifetime.But the excitement and fame Adam seeks soon are swallowed up in trials that not even the hardy young boy is prepared to face. Disaster seems to strike at every turn when they try to bring a herd of reindeer from Norway all the way to the Yukon in an effort to help the troubled miners. Will they reach the men before it's too late?HELP IS ON THE WAY, BUT WILL IT BE ON TIME?
