RB056 The Ice Prison

It's 30 degrees below zero in the Knotty Pine region. It is not a fit time to be out for man or beast. Even Frenchy DeSalle and his loggers are in their cabins huddled around blazing fires to keep warm. As Frenchy and the boys relax a nearly frozen man knocks at the door. It's Moose McBain. He has walked for three days to tell what he found - a man frozen in Big Pine Lake. Frenchy calls a doctor for Moose and then calls Bill Jefferson. Bill and our rangers come right out to find the frozen man. At the same time, Bill learns that a group of scientists are lost in the Big Pine region. Could this man be part of this party? The rangers will have to make a very dangerously cold trek to Big Pine Lake to find out.
