It's 1863, and the fortunes of Lisa and the McNaughtons are looking up. The gold nugget Lisa discovered will pay for her family to be reunited with her in the mining town of Cameronton, and she, Archie, and Mr. Wattie have staked their claim. They've also staked their hopes on discovering more gold.

Trouble looms, however, when a fierce-looking miner called Samuel Stokes insists that the claim--and Lisa's nugget--belong to him. Stokes is a bully, and Lisa is scared of him, but she's sure that he has no claim to her gold, and she's not going to give it up without a fight.

Welcome back to OUR CANADIAN GIRL and the continuing adventures of Lisa and many other smart, spirited, and courageous girls. They come from different places and times in Canadian history, and each of them meets some ordinary--and extraordinary--challenges in her day-to-day life.
