Days of Gold: Klondike Gold Rush adventure
A Klondike Gold rush adventure for young readers.
The year is 1897. Twelve-year-old Marianne and her fourteen-year-old brother Thomas find themselves alone in Seattle at the beginning of the great Klondike Gold Rush. With some food from the family grocery store, but little money and no wilderness experience, the bold pair head for the Yukon, determined to find their father who is prospecting there. But Pa hasn't been heard from for a year. Will they find him alive? Will they win their race against the threatening arctic winter? During their quest, Marianne and Thomas face danger from challenging mountains, raging rapids and unscrupulous adults. They also encounter kindness and generosity, and discover courage and endurance they didn't know they had.
