Annie and Casey are propelled from placid country life to sea-going exploration and deep woods adventure when they join a team of young Seattle scientists.
Four years earlier, Annie and her two older sisters were pleasantly surprised when their dad, Harry Kinsman, brought Casey, a cousin about their age fresh from New York, to their spacious home, Overton Manor, in a bustling farm community in Washington State. With the girls' loving encouragement and some hard knocks from life in the west, Casey becomes a hard-riding ranch hand.
Now, Annie and Casey in this odyssey to a strange new land, meet stark and sometimes dangerous displays of nature in the wilds of unexplored Alaska.
"This Casey Jones adventure features an exciting and heartwarming action story full of learning and growth. Annie is a refreshingly intelligent and capable female protagonist who has a fun group of supportive friends. Together they face challenges in the wild, and learn about life and human nature."
