The heroes of Chocolate River Rescue—Tony, Shawn, Craig, Petra and Hobie the Newfoundland Dog—are back for this fast-paced adventure set in the White Rocks of New Brunswick. Alone in the woods, they have to use their ingenuity to escape a raging forest fire—and end up in even deeper trouble. Now their only chance to escape the flames is to take refuge in the legendary White Caves—but will they be able to find them in time? This action-packed tale will keep even the most reluctant reader turning the pages until its amazing conclusion!
