Children Ages 10+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Hobbs's hero from JASON'S GOLD continues his Gold Rush adventures when he enters the Alaska Commercial Company's race from Dawson City to Nome, Alaska. Hindered by the conniving of Cornelius Donner; assisted by the mutt, Burnt Paw; and inspired by the Princess of Dawson, Jamie Dunavant--Jason Hawthorn follows his dreams. Boyd Gaines narrates with the enthusiasm of a determined 18-year-old set on recovering his family sawmill and living "life on his own hook." Discouraged at times, elated at others, Gaines keeps the tension of the race alive and, at the same time, shares the adventure with immediacy. He voices convincingly the slick crook and the talented teammate and soul mate. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
