Jason's Gold

By Will Hobbs (2)

Show/Hide Info

Will Hobbs’ Jason’s Gold is a realistic portrayal of an exciting and tumultuous time in history, the Klondike Gold Rush. The titular narrator is fifteen-year-old Jason Hawthrone, who, while in New York, hears of the exciting tension around everyone’s foray up North. He travels to Seattle in hopes of convincing his two elder brothers to make the trip with him to the Yukon goldfields. Upon his arrival in Seattle however, Jason finds his brothers have already left, leaving him woefully low on funds and supplies. In an attempt to meet up with his brothers, Jason hides away on a steamer, thus beginning his adventures along the treacherous road to gold. Along the way, he befriends a young Jack London, saves a husky he names King, and helps a young boy suffering the abandonment of his father, due to the boy’s amputated leg. The authentic details and vividly painted landscape cements Jason’s Gold in historical context, making Hobbs’ novel a worthwhile read, especially for students ages 10 and up.
