Ruth Fielding, Volume 2by Alice B. Emerson
Containing the books "Ruth Fielding at Snow Camp" and "Ruth Fielding at Lighthouse Point," this volume continues the trials and tribulations of a young girl, Ruth Fielding, an orphan who goes to live with her miserly uncle, Jabez Potter, and his housekeeper, Aunt Alvirah Boggs, who is "nobody's relative, but everybody's aunt." Uncle Jabez reluctantly provides for Ruth and never expresses any kind of love for her, while Aunt Alvirah loves her like a daughter. Ruth is determined to stand on her own and become independent of her uncle, but she has many obstacles to overcome.
• * "Ruth Fielding at Snow Camp" takes place during Briarwood Hall's winter break. With her friends, Helen and Tom Cameron, Madge Steele, Jennie Stone, Belle Tingley, and Lluella Fairfax she visits a winter camp deep in the wilderness, Snow Camp. Between the constant aggravation of Fred Hatfield, runaway horses, fending off not one but two attacks by a cougar, playing and fighting with her friends, there is never a dull moment in the deep woods near the Canadian border of the U.S. And how will the girls fare when they get lost in a blinding blizzard? Will they freeze? And who is shouting for help in the woods besides themselves?
• * The school year has just ended in "Ruth Fielding at Lighthouse Point," and Jennie "Heavy" Stone has invited Ruth and five others to her home at Lighthouse Point to frolic in the sea. Things are off to a rocky start when Mary Cox falls overboard on the lake-steamer Lanawaxa, then Ruth discovers trouble at home, Red Mill, that might prevent her from returning to Briarwood Hall in the fall. She makes it to Lighthouse Point, but not much later a ship founders on the point, and a daring rescue is attempted! Nita, the girl rescued from the wreck, has secrets to keep and refuses to discuss her past. But someone has found her secret, and uses it to kidnap her while leaving everyone else thinking she ran away. What is Nita's secret? What has happened to her? Where is she? And who is Bill Hicks?
• * "Ruth Fielding at Snow Camp" and "Ruth Fielding at Lighthouse Point" were both published in 1913, and this volume includes the original frontispiece illustrations.
