Far out to sea, the freighter Stjerne, fought the storm bravely. At home in the little Norwegian fishing village, twelve-year-old Arne and his family waited and prayed. It was the Christmas season, and the Stjerne was the Christmas ship this year, bearing Yuletide gifts and other good things for the village.
But more important than the gifts, the Stjerne carried her gallant crew, and Arne's brother Gustav, her first mate. How Arne does his part to help bring the ship safely into port makes a thrilling tale.
