(From the publisher):
Kirsten welcomes summer when it finally arrives in Minnesota. Even her chores, like going to the stream to catch fish for dinner, seem like play. One day while she's fishing, Kirsten leaves the stream to explore the woods beyond the farm. There she finds a treasure -- a bee tree packed with honeycombs. Kirsten knows Papa could use the honey to trade for things the family needs. So she decides to surprise him by bringing the honey home. Kirsten needs help, so she asks her brother Peter to go with her. But they don't know that bears are after Kirsten's treasure, too.
