Jem panning for gold

Goldtown Adventures
Gold Rush Adventure in the Old West
Susan K. Marlow
It's 1864 . . . The California Gold Rush is about over, but 12-year-old Jem Coulter and his sister, Ellie, are sure they can pan more gold from Cripple Creek. With Pa's new job as sheriff of lawless Goldtown, and a cousin and aunt from back East moving in, there's plenty of adventure for everyone.
Whether figuring out why Cripple Creek has mysteriously dried up, or getting trapped in the belly of an old mine . . . or following clues into a dark and mysterious canyon, Jem's life in a gold-mining camp is always exciting, with plenty of opportunities to learn to trust God.
