Moonshiner's Goldby John R. Erickson
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
The year is 1927, and fourteen-year-old Riley lives with his mother and younger brother, Coy, on the family’s ranch in the Texas Panhandle. Things haven’t been easy for the family since Riley’s father died, but with hard work and devotion, they manage just fine. But all that changes when Riley and Coy stumble upon a moonshine still on their property. Riley knows that it can mean nothing but trouble, but he doesn’t know who he can trust—especially when the law refuses to help. Fortunately, Riley’s grandfather shows up just in time. Grampy is determined to outwit the outlaws, so he and the family set off on a journey to find the truth—and instead find themselves caught up in a crime ring that extends farther than they ever imagined!
Meet the Author
John R. Erickson is the author of the popular Hank the Cowdog series, described by USA Today as “the best family entertainment in years.” Erickson lives on his own 8,500-acre ranch, which straddles the majestic Canadian River canyon in the Texas Panhandle. Eleven miles from the nearest paved road, he leads a cowboy’s life riding the range on horseback, mending fences, and tending to his herd of cows, calves, and Bonsmara bulls. But, before the ranch work starts, John rises at 5:30 a.m. to write. The idea for Moonshiner’s Gold began to form when he and his son Mark discovered the remains of seven moonshine stills of their property, which they believe operated during Prohibition. The author of more than forty books for young readers, Erickson lives with his wife, Kris, near his boyhood home of Perryton, Texas.
