Summary of the Book 'Hidden Gold':

Hidden Gold by Anthony Wilder. CHAPTER I THE COMING OF THE SHEEP From his seat on the top of a high ridge Gordon Wade looked into the bowl-shaped valley beneath him with an expression of amazement on his sun-burned face. Pouring through a narrow opening in the environing hills and immediately spreading fan-like over the grass of the valley were sheep hundreds thousands of them. Even where he sat a good quarter mile above them the air was rank with the peculiar smell of the animals he detested and their ceaseless Ba-a-a ba-a-a ba-a-a sounded like the roar of surf on a distant coast. Driven frantic by the appetizing smell of the sweet bunch-grass the like of which they had not seen in months the sheep poured through the gap like a torrent of dirty yellow water urged on from the rear and sides by barking dogs and shouting herders.
