Book 3: The Gold Escort Gang
When Tommy Bell finds himself caught in a struggle between two friends, he decides to take a break from it all and escape... back to 1862. Tommy's magic cabbage-tree hat sends him back once again to the gold rush days, when he stumbles into more trouble than he left behind. Face-to-face with the dangerous Frank Gardiner and his mates 'Flash Jack' and Ben Hall, Tommy learns about the value of true friendship and about how it feels to be part of one of most infamous robberies in Australia's history.
