Another summer with Remington Wickers? Kiff Kokatow will go crazy. Remington spoiled his summer two years ago. He never helps, he never wants to go anywhere, and everything scares him - even a few harmless leeches.But this year, Remington has a surprise for Kiff and his friends. He arrives at Big Pickle Lake with a horse, and it isn't just any horse. It's an award-winning Icelandic horse. Too bad Remington can't ride!
At first, Kiff teases Remington to death. But when Kiff discovers gold near the old Carter mine, he loses interest in Remington. Something strange is going on near the mine, and Kiff wants to know what it is. Who could guess that when Kiff gets into trouble there, Remington Wickers is the only person who can save him!
Written for readers eight and up, Gallop for Gold is another exciting adventure by popular children's writer Sharon Siamon, author of A Horse for Josie Moon and Fishing for Trouble.
