Her father, Frank, wants her to marry a Christian, of course ... but a wealthy Christian. So when the Black Hills of the Dakota Territory (and Sioux country) are opened for gold prospecting, Jim stakes a claim, hoping to strike it rich enough to win Alyssa's hand with her father's approval. Thousands of people converge on the Black Hills, seeking gold for everything from medical bills to oil investments. Jim realizes he's in a mission field among the prospectors?and even the Sioux Indians. But will he ever find enough gold to satisfy Frank McGuire and marry his beloved Alyssa Rose?"--Cover, p. 4.
