Jo is determined to follow her dream of striking gold in the cariboo.

It's 1861 and orphan Jo has made it from Carson City, Nevada, to San Francisco without anyone figuring out that she's a girl in boy's clothing. When she hears talk of gold strikes in the Cariboo, Jo and her friend Bart sign on for what turns out to be a journey far more arduous and dangerous than anything Jo experienced as a Pony Express rider. Through it all, Jo keeps her true identity a secret. Strong men turn back but Jo forges ahead, unsure of what lies ahead but sure that her father and mother would be proud of her determination.

Nikki Tate is the author of more than thirty books, most of which are for children and teenagers. She lives in Canmore, Alberta, and has traveled all over the world and spent time in Australia, the Caribbean, Europe, Iceland, Canada, France, the United States and Japan.

"A straightforward adventure story [that] does a good job of portraying the difficulties involved in the trek to the gold fields. Recommended." - CM Magazine
