Twelve-year-old Lizzie Parker's father died after the stock market crash of 1929. Accustomed to a comfortable life in Seattle, she is now so poor that she is sent to live with her uncle in a remote logging camp in British Columbia. But when she arrives, her uncle is gone. Left to fend for herself among rough loggers, she begins to unravel the mystery of her uncle's disappearance--only to discover that her own life is in danger. Now Lizzie must find out just how brave she truly is.
