"...This was a lemming year in Finland, a year when the rodents swarm into the sea. And strange things often happen in a lemming year. There were mysterious occurances that winter in the lowland village of Aulumas. And it was Mikko, the boy who had charge of Onni, the master's beloved white reindeer, who first had a feeling that things were not right. Mikko was uneasy when the handsome outlander from a faraway town arrived in camp to stay with Timmo, the master. But Mikko was a sensitive boy, and the young daughter of Timmo's overseer said he was only jealous of the master's new friend. Then Onni was stolen. Mikko's master grew morose and worried. When Timmo went to see Mammo, the wizard, to have his white racer charmed back, the boy knew that Onni must be found soon. He knew, too, that the wizard's magic was powerless. Here is an absorbing story of life in a Lapland community: the harshness and monotony of the long, dark winters; the thrill of traveling in an ahkio pulled by a reindeer, gliding noislessly over the snow in the polar moonlight. It is also the story of a people, their superstitions, their traditions, their lives within the Arctic Circle."
