Oregon's Hidden Gold Found

Spencer Friese

Deep in the backwoods and badlands of Oregon, there lurk many mysteries.


Can all the prints be of human feet or are they too big? Can there be gold in them there mountains or under the valleys, or is all that just an old joke now? The Indians are long gone and they were no miners, so who made that saucer-shaped hollow in the ground?


Or what?


Lawbreakers tell no tales. But is that because none of them lived to tell them?


Yet there is one family that always spends its holidays there, camping out, hunting and fishing. They are well armed to protect their property, well practised in tracking and stalking game, and the father is a deputy sheriff.


Find out which accidents are waiting to happen by following his sons, Biff and Sparky, as they face the crooks, confined spaces and other consequences of solving Oregon's greatest mystery.
