Hawthorne left his home in Seattle to seek his own fortune and find his
freedom. His father and mother were dead while his older brothers were
stuck working as laborers, a life he didnít want for himself. After a year
of wandering across the United States, Jason is working in New York when
he hears the news of the gold rush on the Klondike of the Yukon Territory.
This, Jason thought, was his chance to make his fortune! He rushed back
to Seattle as fast as he could to collect the small inheritance his father
had left him, in order to outfit himself for the adventure. Jason finds
that he is too late as his brothers have gone off to the Yukon without
him, taking his money with them. With little more than the clothes on his
back, Jason sets off after his brothers. What an adventure he is in for!
Follow Jason on the Yukon trail with all of its trials and tribulations
in Jasonís Gold by Will Hobbs. (New
