More Details How to Purchase
Captain Chads came from a family with a long tradition of distinguished service
in the Royal Navy and the British Army. Capt. Chads was awarded the Military
Cross in 1916 but had to retire due to injuries sustained on active service.
He turned to a life of adventure. Following up an advertisement in the London
"Morning Post" Capt. Chads joined a Mr.Ford for a money making expedition
to South America.
Mr.Ford was not all he seemed, Capt. Chads' new partner turned out to be a murderer and to have stolen an aircraft full of drugs. After an inauspicious start, Capt. Chads travelled alone visiting many fascinating, dangerous and uninhabited places. He also worked at the Oplaca mine in Bolivia, before moving on to Fabulosa.
"In Search of Gold" is a fascinating story, a testament to Captain Chads' ability to survive, in the most unlikely and challenging of circumstances, as he embarked on treacherous journeys through the desert and the Andes.
