From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- This fictionalized account of John Thompson's first winter trek across the Sierra Nevada in the mid-19th century will captivate many beginning readers. When mail delivery is halted because of heavy snows, Norwegian-born Thompson (one of American's skiing pioneers) volunteers to deliver a young California boy's letter to his father in Carson City, Nevada. The boy, Danny, helps him make a pair of skis--splitting and sanding the wood planks, boiling the wood, and shaping the tips. Sandin's watercolor illustrations add to the understanding and emotion of the easy-to-read text. The rugged appearance of the pioneers, the work involved in making the skis, and the developing friendship between Thompson and Danny are revealed through the artwork. The snowstorm, with its white and grays, dominates and blends the colors. Although most of the townfolk think Thompson is foolhardy to attempt a crossing, the boy's faith is unfailing. This tale is especially appealing set against the background of Danny's loneliness for his father. Don't miss this warm bit of historical fiction set in a cold forbidding climate. (Unfortunately, the CIP classifies it as nonfiction.) --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
