Description: "The Voles in the High Hills have been preparing for winter. It's no easy job to gather supplies in such rocky terrain, and when they open their chests to take out their warm winter quilts only to find them eaten away by the moths, it's the last straw. Mr. Apple hears of their plight and mounts a relief operation. The weavers hurriedly prepare new blankets and Mr. Apple and a small party of mice plan to climb up to the Voles to deliver them. Hearing of the expedition, Wilfred Toadflax is eager to go along. It's not so much to help with the delivery but because he believes that there's gold be found in the High Hills and this is his chance to discover it…"
