About the Author

Franklin W. Dixon was the pseudonym devised by Edward Stratemeyer for the author of a series of mystery books he was developing which became the Hardy Boys series. The first book, The Tower Treasure, originally published in 1927, was ghostwritten by Leslie MacFarlane who went on to write 19 more, including #2 through #16. In all, there are 58 titles in the original Hardy Boys Mysteries series published between 1927 and 1979 written by 17 different men and women. Many of the books were later revised, adding another four Hardy Boys Mystery Stories to the total.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hardy's Strike "GOLD" April 29 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is simply awesome to read. Joe and Frank are asked by their dad to help assist him on a case regarding a gang of outlaws who have connections throughout the U.S.
The story takes place in the mining community of Lucky Lode, Montana. On the way to Montana the Hardy's are tricked in Chicago by a connection of the gang and upon reaching Cold Springs are almost killed. Once in Lucky Lode they have encounters with the gang members who at all cost try and get rid of the Joe and Frank by any means necessary.
The gang turns out to be looking for the same gold claim as one of Fentons friends has claims too. Eventually the Hardy's find the gold and have to protect it from the gang.
The book had lots of suspense and action that other Hardy book could use. This has to be one of their best books if not the best. Read this book people. It's worth every bit of it.

Format:Hardcover
This review is of the 1963 Revised Version of "Hunting for Hidden Gold". The first 38 titles in the series were revised over the course of 15 years (some with minor changes, others were completely re-written). "Hunting for Hidden Gold" is the fifth Hardy Boys mystery. This edition is said to be drastically altered from the original. What this means, according to the Hardy Boys Unofficial Home Page, is that the text and plot have both been changed.
Frank and Joe Hardy become involved in another mystery when their father calls them out west to help with a case. They are searching for a gang that is involved in robbery, and even on the way out west, they are kidnapped and attacked and it is only with great luck that they even are able to meet up with their father. They find him hurt badly, but begin the investigation on their own and learn about a mystery about gold that was stolen from a prospector years ago. Can the brothers keep out of harm's way long enough to solve the case?
"Hunting for Hidden Gold" is another solid offering in the Hardy Boys series, though I would not say this is one of the best. It is a bit of an adventure story and it gives the sense of really being out west (as opposed to a story set in Bayport). There is a definite sense of place in this book. As usual, this book is recommended for kids of all ages (even the 25 year old kid).

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible!! April 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
... This book is excellent; definately one of the top three of the series. The action starts on page 1 and doesn't let up until the book is finished. Hunting For Hidden Gold has perhaps the best mystery out of all of the books in the series and is written quite well unlike most of the books put out after the early 1950s. The book is very exciting, as quite often Frank and Joe are chasing, or being chased by, the criminals. Definately one of the best, no Hardy Boys fan should miss this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hardy Boys #5 Nov. 11 2001
Format:Hardcover
I read this particular number of the Hardy Boys series only after reaching middle age. I read many as a young boy, but most of the earliest #3 through #8, I have only read since finding the Applewood reproductions.
All these books are good, allowing they're for boys. The ice skating scenes were realistic and got me involved. The little house falling over the hillside I found hard to understand, as the boys cooked something on the stove after that. I assume it's a type of structure or something 1920's that I might not understand. Riding the train into Chicago was true to life for a small town boy, also the snow storms in Montana, are written by someone who had experienced them, or better had a strong imaginative understanding of situations. A good writer.
I wish these stories would be made into movies, not for special effect, for humor, or updated, but just as is, with actors who take the characters and situations seriously.

It was a okay mystery that sent chills up my back. It's not the best but it's not bad. It was exciting when Frank and Joe run into the cave and find wolves there. Okay book.
