(From the publisher):
Anyone foolhardy enough to venture into the vast, unexplored regions beyond the Mississippi ran the risk of being attacked by hostile Indians or wild beasts or starving to death in the Great American Desert. Those threats didnt hinder young Nathaniel King. Leaving New York City in 1828, he headed west because his uncle had promised to share with him the greatest treasure in the world. Nathaniel's trail led him from danger to danger, and into the wild, uninhabited Rocky Mountains. There, life was a never ending struggle to survive from one day to the next. If Nathaniel lived he would unearth a treasure far more valuable than he had ever imagined.
