About the Book

The gold hunters is an English novel written by James Oliver Curwood. In the first part of this story, a young Indian pathfinder, a white boy, and an old Indian pathfinder are entrusted with locating an abducted Indian princess. The main premise of the book revolves around the risky search for a gold mine by the three explorers who found a treasure map in a skeleton's hand in the previous novel ("The Wolf Hunters''). In the plot, a young Indian Princess is abducted so that three men might try their luck in recovering a lost treasure in the unforgiving Canadian wilderness. The great solitude of the Canadian forest was shrouded in the oppressive silence of noon. The fox was taking his midday nap, and the moose birds were restless and fluffing themselves lazily in the warm glow that was starting to melt the late winter snows. The moose and caribou had fed since early dawn and were resting quietly in the warmth of the February sun. The lynx has curled away in his niche between the great rocks, waiting for the sun to sink further into the north and west before continuing his marauding adventures.

About Author

James Oliver Curwood

James Oliver Curwood was an American action-adventure author and conservationist who lived from June 12, 1878, until August 13, 1927. His stories frequently occurred in Yukon, Alaska, or the Hudson Bay region. In the early and middle 1920s, they frequently appeared in the top 10 best sellers in the US. Curwood was the most-paid author in the world (per word) at the time of his death. Curwood attended the University of Michigan after being born in Owosso, Michigan. He sold his first story in 1898 when he was a college student. He was employed by the Canadian government in 1907 to produce and publish travelogues. He spent several months each year in the Yukon, Alaska, and the Hudson Bay region in search of new inspiration. American novelist William Curwood wrote adventure novels set in the Great Northwest. Many of his stories had romance as a main or secondary story element and included animals as main characters (Kazan; Baree, Son of Kazan, The Grizzly King). His 1919 novel The River's End, which sold more than 100,000 copies, was one of his best-selling works. Throughout his career, a number of intellectual and popular journals published his short tales and other writing.
