Hunter's Gold

Set in New Zealand in 1860, amidst the turmoil of the Otago Gold Rush, 13 year old Scott Hunter sets off to Tucker's Gully to find his father, and en route becomes involved in some dangerous and tricky situations when he encounters thieves, a magician and a variety of other characters. On arriving at his destination, Scott finds that his fathers colleague has been murdered and as Scott's father hasn't been seen for some weeks, has become the prime suspect, and there's a price on his head.
