In 1864, headstrong Pinkerton man Zachary Beddoes is tired of guarding hotels and railway stations, so he decides to quit his life of private law-enforcement and head west for gold. In San Francisco, Zachary hears that the best goldfields are north, in British Columbia. Undeterred by warnings of how harsh and unforgiving the Barkerville goldfields can be, Zachary sets off in search of his fortune. But before he can stake his claim, Zachary unexpectedly becomes an outlaw. Forced to flee into the bush, Zachary must rely on a Chinese prospector named Rosh to keep him alive. In an adventure beyond even Zachary’s wildest dreams, he and Rosh dodge bullets and struggle to survive the wild west of the north.

About the author (2011)

Stan Krumm was raised about 50 miles from the historic town of Barkerville and was intrigued by Canadian history from a young age. After taking over the family business as a jeweller/goldsmith, he took inspiration from the forest surrounding his home on the Quesnel River and penned Zachary’s Gold. The year of its original publication, BC BookWorld called Zachary’s Gold the summer fiction “book to read.” Stan lives in Quesnel, BC.
