He decides to head north, even if it means saying good-bye to his friends and taking a train, stagecoach, and boat to get there When Bart finally arrives, he's ready to fish, sled, and dig up some gold. But Alaska is COLD, and Bart gets in over his head when the worst storm of the century buries all but his ten-gallon hat. All is not lost when Bart's pals follow his trail and rescue their favorite dog. Paired with the wonderful text are Dorothy Donohue's detailed cut-paper illustrations, making this wild, wacky vacation romp the perfect package
