Fort Benton, Montana's main street was a child's delight. The MacKay children, Rob and Marlo, loved this strange world of soldiers, trappers, Indians, and cowboys who walked and drank in the town's confines. For adventurers, the fort was the end of the line. The notorious Clint Sharndo gang rides into town. Turns out the gang had robbed the gold shipment from the steamer Dakota. Deciding to lay low for awhile, they get rooms in a local hotel. Marlo playing near the hotel takes it all in. Having drank too much one evening and back in their hotel room, they talk of their robbery, and pass around a map where the gold is buried. What they don't know is that Marlo, ever the adventure seeker, and her brother Rob, whom Marlo has dragged along, found the window to their hotel room. They see and hear everything. She sneaks through the window, into their room after the gang leaves, and retrieves the map. She convinces Rob not to tell the Sheriff. This is their secret and they will be the town hero's if they recover the gold. They study the map and find, to their delight, that the gold is hidden in the White Cliffs Badlands, that border the Missouri River. They build a raft and take off into an exciting, bold mission. With the Sharndo gang hot on their trail and Indians in the badlands, will they make it to the hiding place and return safely home? Find out in Rob and Marlo's, Dakota Gold Adventure.
I had called upon my friend Sherlock Holmes upon the second morning after Christmas, with the intention of wishing him the compliments of the season. He was lounging upon the sofa in a purple dressing-gown, a pipe-rack within his reach upon the right, and a pile of crumpled morning papers, evidently newly studied, near at hand. Beside the couch was a wooden chair, and on the angle of the back hung a very seedy and disreputable hard-felt hat, much the worse for wear, and cracked in several places. A lens and a forceps lying upon the seat of the chair suggested that the hat had been suspended in this manner for the purpose of examination.
