This book is about 4 kids going to visit and cheer up there Aunt until they figure out they're not alone. There is uranium on their land. They are going to need guards to help the bad people from finding it. 3 men came and offered to buy the ranch for about half of what it is worth. The Aunt didn't take the offer. She finaly gave the ranch to someone who loved it. I liked this story because it's suspenseful. They find bad people but they end up winning. The story also takes place on a ranch which I enjoy too. They explore and find people that have been living on the ranch with out their Aunt knowing about it.

Reason for Reading: This is part of my Random Bookshelf Reading project. I'm also working on re-reading this series and collecting the first 19.This book takes a small turn from the formula of the first three. First the boxcar is not mentioned at all, not even in reminiscences of the past, and the children do not this time go off on their own and make do in the wilderness. First we see cousin Joe and Alice sent off to Europe for summer vacation on the first page. This allows the introduction of yet another new relative to the picture, this time it is Grandfather's sister, the children's "Aunt" Jane. First the girls go to visit this crotchety old lady and win over her heart and then the boys follow suit. Once again the mystery starts off with a mystery person, a stranger in town. Could he possibly be up to no good? Then three men try to buy off Aunt Jane's farm by telling her lies that the farm is worthless. Who are these suspicious men? The children set out to answer this mystery and end up finding another exciting mystery as well. Another fun, entertaining entry in the series.This one does show its age a little though with the discovery of Uranium on the farm. I know little of this mineral and after briefly reading about it find the story is quite naive in its treatment of the mining of such and that the ranch being on a Uranium deposit could possibly have been a health concern as would having a fireplace made out of Uranium. But I imagine in the 50's, Uranium was the "thing" what with it being the beging of the nuclear age and all. This is all irrelevant to the enjoyment of the story for children, though.
