Grade 2-4–The second book in this trilogy takes up immediately where Sailing for Gold (Aladdin, 2004) leaves off. Davey Hill, an 11-year-old orphan living in the late 1800s, is a stowaway on a ship headed to the Klondike, where he hopes to find his uncle. When he is discovered, Erik, a traveling photographer, pays his fare and takes him on as an assistant. The ship docks and then it's on to the long trail, an arduous trek on snow and ice that just about does the two hikers in. The fast-paced plot is interesting, and newly independent readers will appreciate the large type and the occasional black-and-white drawings. As with the first book, the tale ends abruptly, leaving readers dissatisfied and frustrated. Although Hopkinson does a fine job of capturing the grueling experience of the Klondike hikers, the book is weakened by its inability to stand alone.–Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
