The Yoder family packs up and moves once again—this time to join other Amish families in Colorado where inexpensive farmland is plentiful. Despite the drought, Mother\'s illness, and a raging wildfire, the family quickly adapts to life in their new homeland.
Along the way young Joe, intrigued with the exciting stories of the area\'s gold rush and dreaming of an easier life, tries his hand at gold panning. One adventure leads to another, but it\'s the chance meeting with an older gentleman—who had panned for gold most of his life—in which Joe learns some of life\'s truly golden lessons. Together, the old man and the boy discover real treasure.
Based on actual events from a time long ago, this unforgettable story from the Amish Frontier Series, perfect for ages 8 to 12, brings to life the Yoder family\'s struggle to live a life of faith on the Colorado frontier.
