You can purchase my newest book, In Quest of Gold, in hard back, paperback or e-book from Xlibris, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million and Amazon. It would make a great Christmas gift. It is suitable for young adults and adults.
This story is retold from the diary of Jacob P. Prickett. When he was editor of a newspaper back in the late 1800s he wrote the story in a series of serials and then compiled them together and pasted them into a book. The book was handed down in the family from generation to generation and tells a wonderful story about his trip as a young boy of 17, when he joined on with a wagon train going west to the Gold Rush. More than gold he was seeking excitement and adventure and he certainly found plenty of both. His other goal was to find his older brother, Thomas who was already in California.
