Race for the Gold SC (2007 Novel) comic books
1st printing. "An Epic of the American West!" By Thorn Bacon. Race for the Gold is a novel based on the true story of Louis Remme, a French Canadian cattle trader living in Oregon. In February of 1855 Remme was a relatively rich man, having deposited $12,500 in gold from the sale of his latest herd into the San Francisco branch of the Adams Express Company Bank. The future seemed bright, until a series of bank collapses cascaded and wiped out the Adams Express, and with it all the money Remme had in the world. But fate dealt Remme one last chance to save his fortune: with no telegraph to warn them, the only way for news to reach the Oregon branch of Adams Express so that they would not hand out any more money to depositors was by steamboat. Will Remme, on horseback, get there before the ship and save his fortune? Race for the Gold mixes the best elements of historical fiction with the thrill of an action story. ? Based on historical facts. Softcover, 208 pages, text only. Cover price $14.95.
