About the book:
'This isn't the one I want! This one is the smallest - the runt of the litter! We need the bravest and best - the champion!' Jim stopped smiling and frowned at Fitz. 'Don't look at his size! It's what's in here that counts! And here!' said Jim, pointing to his head and then his heart. 'Just look at him!' It's the 1870s in South Africa and 'gold' is the buzzword. From all over, hopeful diggers are streaming to this beautiful yet hard land, where fortunes can be made and lost and where opportunities lie around every corner ...but where dangers, criminals and crooks also abound! It is here that Jock has to face trouble - man trouble - and learn that it takes the heart of a champion to be a true and loyal friend, no matter what dangers you're facing.
