by Deborah Hopkinson

The year is 1897. The place, Seattle. Young Davey is alone. He has saved his money so that he can go find his only living relative, Uncle Walt who has joined the Alaskan Gold Rush. When his money is stolen, Davey decides on a dangerous plan. Will he make it to Alaska or will the nasty Mrs. Tinker who owns his boarding house collar him before he can escape?

Sailing for Gold is the first in a trilogy of an exciting adventure told by Davey himself.
