When boys fish they do tend to be competitive, especially with their older brothers and Pa, but Spud may regret that decision to fish away from them so he could show them all up by catching more and bigger fish.

Reminiscent of the Jean Craighead George novel, "My Side of the Mountain," "Lost Indian Gold" has the potential to be a classic.

This is the story of his adventures. The author did a very will job in keeping the audience entranced. I found the wording very authentic – all told from first person perspective and the characters very likeable (how cute are those little sisters). This bo
