Publisher's Summary

Jem Coulter thinks his family is just on a sightseeing trip to the big city of Sacramento. Then, armed bandits hold up the stagecoach for the secret stash they’re carrying: gold for the Union Army fighting the distant Civil War! Suddenly, war isn’t so far away; it’s right there on the road to Sacramento, with Jem’s father, the sheriff of Goldtown, fighting against the rebel army’s Knights of the Golden Circle.

When the family finally reaches the city, they think they’re safe, at last. Setting out to see the sights, Jem, his sister Ellie, and their cousin Nathan make a new friend. But is Henri the pal they think he is? With a father who is a die-hard Confederate, could Henri be in cahoots with the thieves?

River of Peril gives listeners aged nine to 13 the fast-moving, exciting adventure they’ve come to expect in this series, as well as a glimpse into the history of post-Gold Rush and Civil War life in 1860s California, with stagecoaches, steamboats, stowaways...and lots of gold!
