Some gold seekers embraced success, delight, and happiness, but others faced failure, tragedy, and sorrow. In the Dreams of Gold series, we captivate our readers' imaginations, as well as touch their hearts with both types of results in the gold seekers' experiences--good and bad." --Al and JoAnna LacyFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
