A childhood classic that I read again recently and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. As an adult, I can see how Nancy creates her own games for them all. The mining is a game, and made more fun by having a possible claim-jumper. But Nancy is also mature enough to know where the game ends - they rapidly work alongside the 'enemy' when it is important to do so.

Definitely a keeper and I'll be going back to re-read more books in the series.

It's strange now, to see how much the world has changed. Not only the lack of mobile phones, but even land lines were rare when this book was written. Cars were few on the road, camping was incredibly basic with no gas stoves, etc.

A slower paced world, and maybe the better for it. ( )
