Annotation:
Do you dare join a rebellion? Stand up to a bully? Risk your life for a friend?

Henry lives with his father and sister on the Victorian Goldfields. Still mourning the loss of his mother and baby brother, Henry helps his father to mine their claim and hopes that one day they will strike it rich. But they can't afford a mining license and without a license they are at the mercy of the corrupt police. When Henry meets a new friend, Frank, he enters a world of politics, riots, and rebellion that will lead him to Eureka Stockade, one of the defining moments in Australian history.
