KIRKUS REVIEW

In 1849 after the cries of "Gold!" had echoed across the continent to Boston, ships were crammed with fortune-seekers. Twelve-year-old Jack and Praiseworthy, a butler, were among those heading west. The two were attempting to make money for Jack's Aunt Arabella, so she wouldn't have to sell the old house. The picaresque tale becomes monotonous and at last draws to a close when the bygone butler weds his mistress, the aforementioned aunt. Not as original as Mr. Mysterious and Company (1962, p.176, J-54) by this author.
