Description

After a lifetime of bad luck, Chris Dearing is sure his family fortunes have finally turned around. With the help of some friends, he's reclaimed his granddad's old land in Dawson City, Yukon, and is adjusting to life with his new foster parents. While he waits for his dad to get out of jail, Chris turns his attention to his next challenge: finding the gold that he knows is somewhere on his family's claim.

What's standing in his way? A few things: a) he doesn't know a thing about gold mining, and it turns out there's a lot more to it than a pan in a creek; b) Lucy, the attack goose guarding the local junkyard; c) the fact that Family Services keeps getting in the way; d) two Filthy Rats trying to swindle Chris's dad out of the gold; oh, and last but not least, e) the rumours that Chris's grandfather didn't actually find his gold - he stole it!

The stakes are high and the hijinks even higher in this touching, witty companion to Mine!
