Up The Creek

Up The Creek

Chris Dearing is positive his family’s long streak of bad luck is finally over. Sure, he’s thought that before, but this time is different. He’s reclaimed his grandfather’s land in the Yukon – the land his granddad swore was full of gold. Now Chris just has to wait for his father to get out of jail so they can start mining their family fortune.

But things get complicated quickly. His dad’s new “business partners” seem more like crooks. Child Protective Services is getting in the way. And then Chris learns that his grandfather may not have been 100 percent truthful about where his gold actually came from. With his best friend by his side and an angry guard goose on his tail, can Chris hatch a plan to break the Dearing curse once and for all?
