Mac Davis gets a lot more than he bargained for on a family visit to Lethbridge - a sick uncle, rattlesnakes and dangerous trains, and a cousin trapped in a coal shaft so deadly they call it Dead Man's Mine!

The valley is riddled with abandoned mineshafts that still contain some coal but that are so dangerous because of the possibility of methane gas explosions and roof collapses that they are actually illegal to enter. One of them is even called Dead Man's Mine, and that's the one that John Walter and his friend Albert get trapped in.

Mac's got to step in and try to save his cousin, at the same time avoiding other Lethbridge perils such as the plentiful rattlesnakes and the tricky train trestle. Can he handle it all?

With breathtaking action sequences, and his trademark skill at recreating historical settings in this series, Dave Glaze has fashioned another nail-biting adventure for young Mac Davis.

Dave Glazewas born in British Columbia, and has lived in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. He lives in Saskatoon, and, for 25 years, worked as a teacher, librarian, and an educational consultant. Dave is the author of five successful Coteau juvenile novels, including Pelly, Waiting for Pelly, and the other novels in this series.
