Rick and Willow travel along when their parents are hired to make a documentary about Dawson City, Yukon. The long summer days under the midnight sun leave plenty of time for adventure. Their new friend Casey takes Rick and Willow gold panning, and Willow finds a ring that could be from Gold Rush days. Casey’s grandma has an old cabin on her property. It has lots of old papers still stuck in the walls for insulation, but when Rick pulls a piece out he finds a poem written on it. Rick is convinced that “The Bishop Who Ate His Boots” is a lost work by renowned poet Robert Service, and everyone wants to solve the mystery. Readers can explore further aspects of the Gold Rush, the Yukon, and Robert Service with web links, sidebars, and historical notes from two leading children’s authors.
