William Jenkins journeys into the bush only to encounter drunkards, crocodiles, outlaws and aboriginals with a reputation for cannibalism. When he stumbles into a strange community of ex-convicts, their leader tells him, "You're the one sent to us by God." William is then astonished to be offered half the profits in a gold mine. But before William returns to Wales , he discovers that there are more important things in life than riches. "Gold Hunter" will delight young adults who enjoy a well-written tale of adventure.
