About the Book

A seventeen-year-old has found a huge heart of gold hidden beneath a lake high in the Sierra Nevada. It is the mother lode. But can he keep it? Dain King is a ruthless killer who captures Petr and sends him down the river in an old Indian canoe to scare him into revealing the location of his gold. The canoe goes over a waterfall where Petr is rescued by Paiutes. He falls in love with the Indian medicine woman, Minoah. A bad Indian kidnaps Petr’s little sister and uses her to lure Dain King and his men into a trap. The Indians are killed, including Minoah’s father. Now love turns to hatred, and Petr ventures to San Francisco to make a beautiful gift, the Falcon Heart, for Minoah. There, he will remember the secrets of gold shaping. There, he will discover the terrible price of finding gold.
