Combining adventure and mystery, author Donald F. Averill offers
two distinctive novellas in one volume-Glacier Fires and Ornaments
of Value: A Christmas Story.
In Glacier Fires, University of Washington students Tim Michaels
and Art Daniels get more than they bargain for when they travel to
Mt. Baker in northwestern Washington State to test out their new
telescope. With the sight trained on the glaciers, the two discover
a young woman in distress; they rescue Mikka Morgan, a student from
the rival Washington State University. But their adventures
continue when they, Mikka, and Samantha Ashford embark on another
mission to save Sam's forest ranger father, and Otto, an Austrian
mountain climber, from a deep crevasse. Rogue climbers determined
to burn the national forests have left Otto and the ranger in the
crevasse to die.
A heartwarming Christmas story, Ornaments of Value follows widow
Karen Ekstrom as she tries to care for her three small
children-Susan, Larry, and John-during difficult economic times.
Karen dreams of using her artistic talent for the betterment of her
family, and she is hired by Evan Finely, a glass blower, to
decorate his store windows. Her good fortune continues as an
anonymous benefactor leaves money, concealed in holiday ornaments,
at Karen's apartment door. Karen is stymied as to whom the Good
Samaritan might be.
