Quick Overview

When Jem Coulter is caught in a miners' riot, he learns the worst: the Midas mine is no longer producing the gold the town relies on to stay alive. Will, the son of the mine's owner, tells Jem the only way to get the Midas working again is to blast deep into the ground. This means a nearby abandoned mine, now worked by Chinese miners, must be reclaimed for an air shaft.


When Jem's father, farmer-turned-sheriff of Goldtown, is ordered to evict the Chinese from their mine or lose his job, Jem is caught in the middle. Then Will comes up with a solution, but what Jem doesn't realize is that Will's risky plan may lead to disaster deep in the heart of the old mine. Paperback, 144 pages.
