    Titles include:

    Badge of Honor

    It's 1864 and Goldtown, California, has seen the last of its Gold Rush days. But the flecks of gold twelve-year-old Jem Coulter and old prospector, "Strike," find in their played-out claim on Cripple Creek keep Jem's hope of striking it rich alive. In the meantime, selling frog legs and firewood with his sister, Ellie, will have to do. After all, Pa can't seem to make ends meet on their broken-down ranch.

    Tunnel of Gold

    When Jem Coulter is caught in a miners' riot, he learns the worst: the Midas mine has run out of gold. Will, the owner's son, tells Jem the only way to get the Midas working again is to blast deep into the ground for a new vein. This means a nearby abandoned mine must be reclaimed for an air shaft. But... Jem's friend Wu Shen and the other Chinese men are working those diggings. They have no intention of giving up their lawful scavenger rights, not even to save the town.

    Canyon of Danger

    Jem Coulter couldn't be more excited! His sheriff father must escort a prisoner to Sacramento, and he's leaving the ranch in Jem's care. How hard can it be to look after a couple dozen beef cattle and a few chickens? After all, his cousin, Nathan, and his sister, Ellie, will pitch in to help, and Aunt Rose is there to keep house. However, Jem quickly discovers that being the "man of the family" for two weeks is not how he imagined it. Everything goes wrong.

    River of Peril

    A visit to the bustling city of Sacramento should be the trip of a lifetime for twelve-year-old Jem Coulter. He's never traveled so far from Goldtown. But something's not right. Pa won't say what, but Jem can feel it with every bump of the stagecoach. And then, nearing the end of the tiring, two-day journey, the stage is held up. Highwaymen calling themselves the Knights of the Golden Circle haul away a precious shipment of gold. So, why isn't Sheriff Coulter upset over the robbery? Or by the bandits' claim that the holdup is within their rights? The answer turns Jem's carefree city holiday upside down.
