Like the riddle in the Sam’s life, the idea for this story smoldered in my soul for thirty years.
It’s a “what if” tale:
What if happenstance introduced the notion of finding a lost gold mine into your life?
What if even the minimum of research proved that certain facts you were given were true?
What if everyone you knew thought the idea was totally nuts?
What if it cost you every cent you managed to save?
What would you do?
Would you worry about the weather, the fact that you must trespass, or the danger?
No, it would become your new normal.
I’ll tell you what you would do.
You would likely catch THE FEVER.
That is what this story is about.
How far would you go to feed your Fever?
