Mary and her family moved to New Zealand from Australia, ahead of her father, who intended following later. But unforeseen events have kept Mr Brogan in Australia for the past seven years and Mary's mother has had to cope with raising the two children on her own. The family are n...ow living in poverty in the Dunedin where her mother has made it clear Mary must leave school and start contributing. But now gold has been discovered in the Otago hills and Mary is sure her father will be there. If only she can find him, she is sure their troubles will be over. Mary dresses as a boy, calls herself Harry, and makes the long and dangerous trek from Dunedin to the Dunstan - the site of the latest gold rush. Previously published as Finding Father (My Story series).
