The Gold Seekers

Mark Young is riding on the thin edge of danger…

Once a captain on the losing side of the Civil War, Mark finds himself guiding a wagon train from Freeguard to the promise of the gold rush out West.

However, it’s not long before he strikes up an unwelcome rivalry with wagon boss Walt Shaw, after taking a fancy to the beautiful Sheila Blake.

A growing discord between the two men, coupled with a serious water shortage, hamper the wagon’s progress and Mark is all too aware of the dangers that arise from loitering in the desert.

They need to pick up the pace.

Things quickly go from bad to worse when they are suddenly attacked by a wild Apache tribe and find themselves in mortal danger.

Mark’s mission to safely escort the families across the mountainous terrain before winter arrives, if quickly becoming his toughest challenge to date.

Can they reach the safety of the West?

Or will they become yet more victims of the hostile and unrelenting desert?

From the saloon, to the prairie, to the foothills of California, The Gold Seekers is a thrilling and classic Old West adventure.
