Hardy Boys

It has been awhile, thus it was time for another Hardy Boys mystery - Hunting for Hidden Gold. There is not a whole lot to say other than flying through these books is like going back in time, sitting under the great big maple tree next to our house on a summer day reading one of these cover to cover and running back to the library to get another. I could not get enough. These boys incredibly always find themselves in danger and dealing with gangs and thieves, but their fearlessness allows them to conquer whatever gets thrown their way. The adults seem to give them an unbelievable amount of leeway to do whatever they feel is right, and in this particular book, they seem to be experts in camping in the Montana mountains in winter on horseback....even after most of their supplies went down the river......and no one really seems concerned that they are gone. Gosh, to be a Hardy Boy sure would have been something.....and it was something we all aspired to.....and I'm doing it all over again!!! ( )

One day, Frank and Joe Hardy get a call from their father in the town of Lucky Lode. He needs the boys' help on a new case. They hurry to Lucky Lode, but they cannot get any where without getting into trouble along the way. ( )

This time round it's a good old-fashioned western adventure for the Hardy Boys. Spooky cemeteries, haunted ghost towns and abandoned gold mines provide the backdrop for the story of the Hardy's attempts to apprehend the gang behind a payroll robbery. Along the way they are kidnapped, caught in a cave in, chase the criminals on horseback and get sidetracked by the twenty-five year old mystery of missing gold from an old mining prospect.
This fifth volume in the series keeps up the quality and the pace of the previous books. Another great Hardy Boys adventure! ( )

You can tell that the author is trying to get away from the similar format used in the previous books. I think it will take a few more to totally remove the predicatble elements featured in Hardy Boy stories.

A Frank Hardy tour de force. ( )
