An action and adventure novel for young people, set in Alaska during the summertime. It had started out to be a miserable summer for Jerry Nelson--with his father in the hospital recovering from an auto accident and his mother so worried about him--and about finances, too. And Jerry only adding to her worries! At least that was the way it looked the night he was picked up in a car driven by a hot-rodding friend and escorted home by the police. And then the embarrassment of finding his Uncle Ed there in the living room with his mother - well, that was the end! Humiliated and resentful, Jerry doesn't even realize that his luck has turned. And when his uncle offers to take him along to Alaska with the promise of a job for the summer working his gold claim, he accepts reluctantly, and though he is the one doing the favor! 026347
