Tuck Rising, an injured ski champion, returns to his hometown to find work as a Great Camp caretaker. With his new bride Britt Freier and his daughter Tibetta, he moves into a rustic home in the village of Meltmor, planning to stay only until he recovers from his injury and returns to racing. However, that is not to be. Like walking on thin ice, every step he takes brings him closer to peril. This story romps through the high jinks and hard times of a northern village and the lives of caretakers. In a twist of magic realism, Pitt and his pet Rat's prophesies remind us that the way forward is not always clear. Life in the North brings Tuck far more obstacles than flags on a race course. Mystery, fun and sorrow, this story has it all. This book is a revision of Tibetta's World; High Jinks and Hard Times in the North Country.
