WHEN Billy Kendall's fathe r, a mining engineer and a veteran of the Oak Ridge project, (lies tu Alaska to investigate the possibilities of finding deposits of thorium and uranium, he takes Billy and the hitter's best friend, Quenton Rolle, with him. For the two boys it promises an unusual and interesting summer in a land of strange beauties, strange contrasts and stranger inhabitants, especially as both are fond of hunting and the outdoors, and Alaska offers plenty of each. Under the tutelage of an experienced guide, Charlie Wall, Billy and Quenton de¬velop from the tenderest of "cheecha-kos" to fairly rugged sourdoughs in the course of a few months, an attainment that serves them in good stead when they fall into the hands of a group of ruthless and unscrupulous strangers engaged in a sinister mission involving the secret mechanism which Billy's father has developed to locate the precious mineral deposits for which he is searching.
Here is a timely and thrilling story against a fresh and unusual background that is notable not only for its excitement and suspense but also for its authenticity as R. G. Emery, whose Wings Over West Poitil has been read and re-read by thousands of boys, has been remarkably successful in conveying to the reader his personal enthusiasm for one of the world's last geographic frontiers which has suddenly become one of the newest frontiers of science.
