"White Danger" written by Oren Arnold. Published by Holiday House, copyright 1962.
"At first Joe Bob Bancroft was an unwilling member of the team of "snow men." He hadn't asked for the job, and didn't see the point in measuring snow high on the slopes of the Rockies. But by the time he and his companions had penetrated almost inaccessible mountain areas by jeep, Snow-Cat, skis and snowshoes, he changed his mind.
Young Joe Bob discovered that the information they gathered about future water run-off was not only valuable, but that the work was as fascinating as it was hard and dangerous. He made mistakes, but learned from his companions. As he coped with cold and storms, accidents and wild animals, Joe Bob's values changed, and he became a contributing member of the team. He learned to respect the dangers of nature as well as to admire its beauty. Above all, for the first time in his life, he found deep satisfaction in hard work well done."
Veteran author Oren Arnold has himself spent time in the mountains of the West with a snow survey team, so he includes first-hand information in this exciting outdoor novel about a little-known government agency.
