Overview

Three friends head out into the Alaska Bush to explore an abandoned gold mine. Their adventure turns into a nightmare when the old mine starts caving in.
The story then goes back in time to earlier that same year in Anchorage, Alaska, where a young boy, Daniel, starts training one of his grandfather's homing pigeons to be in a race. He discovers that pigeons have special abilities and learns how they have been used in the past for communication.
His pigeon, Streak, and Kayla, who gets lost while going for help, meet when they both take refuge under a big spruce tree during a storm.
Kayla befriends the frightened bird and discovers a message capsule is attached to his leg. Could this little pigeon go for help? A wounded grizzly bear poses even more danger. How will the children get out of this dangerous situation? Something appears that had been hidden.
The children learn that some treasures are not material things but are the life lessons learned by experiences; that prayer and trust in God are a real help and comfort in time of trouble, parents make rules to protect them, friendship is more important than gold, and that helping others is a rewarding experience.
