Summary
When the Unassigned Lands of Oklahoma were thrown open for settlement in 1849, people from all over the country flocked to the territorial borders to await the signal for the land rush. Fourteen-year-old Ossie Bond and his Uncle Hy were among the throngs of eager settlers. They planned to start a newspaper and to stake a claim on some farm land they had heard about from an old prospector. Then disaster struck when a shady character named Gault stole Uncle Hy's map to the farm site and claimed it first. But they had come too far to turn back now and continued with finding a town lot for their newspaper. Ossie didn't forget the beautiful farm and dreamed of how he would outwit Gault to get it back in this absorbing tale of adventure in the Old West."--Jacket
