Eagle, a retired miner, knows of an abandoned gold mine that Cliff suggests they explore. The two men and George go there together. An accident sends Cliff spiraling down a deep shaft. Assuming Cliff is dead, Eagle rappels down to recover the body and finds Incan treasure. He leaves with George and $4,000,000 in gold. They foil a robbery and are invited to a TV talk show where there is a riot and George is stolen. George escapes and has only one thing on his mind -- returning home. He is sure Cliff is there waiting. Finding himself on an airplane with a bomb aboard was not in his plans.
George, the main character of the book, is always getting into trouble, but back out again by the very skin of his chew-toy loving teeth. His adventures will appeal to kids of every age.
