Jem Coulter thinks his family is just on a sightseeing trip to the big city
of Sacramento. Then armed bandits hold up the stagecoach for the secret stash
they’re carrying: gold for the Union Army fighting the distant Civil War!
Suddenly war isn’t so far away; it’s right there on the road to Sacramento, with
Jem’s father, the sheriff of Goldtown, fighting against the rebel army’s Knights
of the Golden Circle.

When the family finally reaches the city, they think they’re safe at last.
Setting out to see the sights, Jem, his sister Ellie, and their cousin Nathan
make a new friend. But is Henry the pal they think he is? With a father who is a
die-hard Confederate, could Henry be in cahoots with the thieves?


River of Peril gives readers ages 8 to 12 the fast-moving, exciting
adventure they’ve come to expect in this series, as well as a glimpse into the
history of post–Gold Rush and Civil War life in 1860s California, with
stagecoaches, steamboats, stowaways—and lots of gold!
