Book Description

Jan. 17 2002 Hardy Boys (Book 42)
The Canadian Northwest beckons Frank and Joe Hardy to mystery and adventure. It all starts when a French-Canadian trapper, Caribou Caron, makes a historical and valuable fin – a carved rune stone left by Vikings centuries ago near Great Slave Lake. When Caribou Caron attempts to sell the artifact to a representative of a museum, it is snatched by thieves. Like the intrepid Viking of old, Frank and Joe, with their close pal, Chet Morton set off on a perilous quest in the Northwest Territories to recover the valuable artifact before the robbers can decipher the symbols leading to the buried treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars "VIKING SYMBOL" Symbols Action And Suspense June 21 2005
By A Customer
Frank and Joe travel to the Northwest Territories to find and viking stone that was taken from a man. The stone has a description on where a viking treasure is located.
In this book all the Hardys friends are involved in solving this caper. Biff and Tony join Sam Radley in Yellowknife to hunt down thieves breaking into lodges around Great Slave Lake. Franf, Joe, and Chet start off in Edmonton to hunt for the stone and meet up with Caribou Caron. He is french trapper who will act as their guide.
From the start the Hardys are being watched and pursued by the gang to get them off the case. Wild animals, a buffalo stampede and sabotage to their canoe don't stop the Hardys from completing their case.
This book was great I thought. It had action, suspense, and adventure. The case had the Hardys working in Canada which I thought was great. The only thing I didn't like was that they met a frenchman in the west is rare. The author seems to have forgotten that there is english people in Canada too! Every Hardy book I've read that has them going to Canada has them meeting french canadians and not english. Besides that the book was great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hesitant Two Rating Jan. 16 2003
This book I rate a 1.6 in a sense. It was ok and worth reading, but was not all that wonderful. My biggest critique of this volume was simply this - and pardon me - but "American ignorance" And any Canadian will know what I'm talking about. First of all, before something goes to print - get your facts together and make sure its accurate. I see this with Scooby Doo, The Hardy Boys and other works of jeuvenille fiction. Americans think there are no English people in Canada!. The brothers travel to the Prairie provinces in Canada in this volume and meet up with who? PIERRE! A Frenchman. Everytime Americans come to Canada they run into French police officers, French fur traders, French lumberjacks etc. French people historically settled in Quebec, New Brunswick and to a lesser degree Nova Scotia - NOT the Prairies - which was settled by people of Ukranian ancestry. My problem with this volume is simply a lack of knowledge on behalf of the Syndicate. The book itself otherwise is medicore. RATED C-

4.0 out of 5 stars The Viking Symbol Mystery July 29 2001
By A Customer
This book is pretty good, because I like Canada, it contains some good plane action, and I laughed at the buffalo stampede. I'd be frozen for a day if I found a Viking rune stone. Another funny part in the story is when Chet wants to eat the bread in the cave, and his appetite brings total sucess of having solved half of the mystery. I can't imagine Chet eating rocks, or he'd eat his teeth too! In the end it seems that it's as easy to catch the theives as finding the rune stone. This was my 6th book and I really enjoyed it, as usual.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Dec 26 2002
By A Customer
Frank, Joe, Chet and Biff go to northern Canada to locate an ancient Viking rune stone that was recently stolen from the man who found it. This is an average book, so there is not much to say about it really. The plot isn't bad and there is a moderate amount of action. Most fans will probably not be overly excited about this book, but it shouldn't bore them either.
