Chasing the Sun, by R.M.  Ballantyne.

Ballantyne had several holidays in Norway, so to write about it and describe it was a pleasure to him.  This book is therefore an account of Norway seen through the eyes of an enthusiast for that country.

Fred takes some friends with him.  Together, they have great adventures and great fun.  They even venture so far north as Lapland, and the Land of the Midnight Sun.

A wonderful piece of vintage Victoriana at its best.
