Some years ago five men pooled their knowledge and ideas of ballistics and created a new cartridge. It is unique in that it incorporates the technology of firearms development from 140 years ago. A lot of that data is missing so they had to re-think and re-discover old ways. This is the story of how it came about.
Get ready for nonstop action. Schuss down slopes with two drunken anti-heroes: Samuel, the rugged Colorado skier, and Erik, a Norwegian fisherman. The men are given a mission that exceeds their integrity: to capture secret weapon plans from the Nazis. They are challenged not only by a mystic shaman of the woods who is the best skier in Norway and protector of the Sami, but also by the Nazis. Atomic Winter most certainly is the very first ski suspense thriller!

After making a clumsy attempt to steal the papers from the Nazis, Samuel and Eric are captured after discovering that the papers have already been stolen by someone else. Shortly afterward, they are rescued by a strange blue-faced Lapp shaman that Samuel nicknames the "blue devil," and a stampede of graceful yet murderous reindeer. After they escape, the "blue devil" hides Samuel and Erik with his wandering Lapps, the people he calls the Sami. During their flight from the Nazis and time spent with the Lapps, Samuel discovers that the Shaman has the secret papers stolen from the Nazis -- and conspires with Erik to steal them from his mysterious host and return them to the allied forces in exchange for a rich reward. The subsequent action, which encompasses a colorful mix of winter warfare and weird, ...

If you have ever been camping -- or even thought about going camping -- chances are that you have a mental image of campfire cuisine. Juicy grilled hotdogs and gooey toasted marshmallows, right? But you may also be wondering if that's all there is because, after several days in the wilderness, you'll probably be craving something a little more nutritious, diverse, and flavorful.
