Gold Rush

By Keith Peterson

Action & adventure, Children's | Paperback, eBook


When eleven year-old Hunter Stevens finds gold in a hidden cave near his home he begins an adventure that will change his life. Along with Megan, his best friend, they find themselves in a dangerous plot that began more than 200 years ago. Only their wits can save them once they know what is at stake... I wanted to write an adventure for 9-12 year olds that was not set in a fantasy world. There are enough books with dragons, fairies, wizards and vampires. I am not saying there is anything wrong with that, but I think a modern adventure for kids where the main character overcomes some tough odds with ingenuity and cleverness, not magic, is worth giving our kids. At the same time, I work in some geology and science to promote the need for understanding the world around us.



I am the author of Gold Rush, the first in a series of Middle Grade adventures that will span the globe. I have spent my life travelling and exploring in one form or another and I draw on this experience to entertain, inform, teach and inspire with my adventure series for kids. My own adventures began in Virginia as does my first book. Expect to see future installments in Hawaii, California, Germany, Spain, France, Texas and other places (not necessarily in that order). The science and geology in this book draws from my experiences as an exploration geologist after college. Besides that, I have been a soldier in the Army, a sailor in the Navy (and still am today), a musician, a martial artist and a dog owner. I live in Virginia with my wife, two children (age 9 and 11), a dog and a cat.
