Norman Stanley, Fred's father, is injured in a mining accident. He cannot do hard work to support the family. As the only child of the family, Fred, 17 years old, has to quit school to help earn a living for the family.
While trying to look for a job, Fred learns from one of his father's friends that a gold miner has buried a lot of gold in a cave in Alaska. Many people have tried to find the gold, but have all failed. Fred decides to try his luck. With the permission of the widow of that gold miner, Fred receives a copy of the map for the gold and sets out to look for the treasure with his father's friend, Mr. Baxter and his son Jerry. Can they find the treasure? If they can find it, can they bring it safely home?
This book is rewritten from "The Young Treasure Hunter: Or Fred Stanley's Trip To Alaska" by Frank V. Webster.
