Michael and Meredith Lamb, who live in England, are delighted when their adventurous Uncle Tony invites them to accompany him on a trip to the Swiss Alps. In Switzerland they meet warm-hearted people, explore the countryside, and best of all, make friends with Fritz, who teaches them the art of mountain climbing.
Towering over their little valley is the peak of the mighty Wildhorn. To reach its summit requires hardiness, discipline, and a courageous spirit. Can Michael measure up? Can Merry?
