Jock of the Bushveld : Novelisation
Fitz looks at the puppy in front of him. '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 stops smiling and frowns at Fitz. 'Don't look at his size!' Jim thumped his own chest. 'It's what's in here that counts! And what's in here, in his heart!' It's the 1870s in South Africa and 'gold' is the buzzword. From all over, hopeful diggers are streaming to this beautiful, but 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 where 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.
