I'm afraid he's gone. It seems like we're the only survivors.
Where's Fiddler Donnelly?
Hello children, is there anything i could possibly do to help?
I'm Little Luke's Wife
Please make yourselves at home, you can stay for as long as you like.
Arriving in America, the vessel suddenly crashed into a cliff. Fortunately, Sean and Annie survived the shipwreck safely with their golden torc and fiddle. However their friend Fiddler Donnelly was no where to be found.
GIVE ME THE GOLD NECKLACE OR ELSE I'LL KILL HIM!
They were lost in Boston and didn't know how to get to California. With no money or food, they had to make a living. They busked; Sean played the fiddle while Annie danced. Their performance on the street attracted a friendly man named Little Luke.
A deal is a deal, it's mine now.
ARGH! FINE THEN, HERE YOU GO.
Little Luke wanted to help them. He convinced his guardians Miss Henry and Miss Martha to let Sean and Annie stay at their house, which they agreed on. Sean and Annie had a very comfortable stay and wanted to live there forever. However they must complete their ambition which was to find their father.
I don't think he wants to be found... Come on Annie we can do this alone.
Sean, we have to find The Colonel he's going to die in this desert, he can't even walk out of here!
On Christmas Eve, Sean and Annie decided it was time to leave and search for their father. They headed towards California on Little Luke's wagon until one night when a thief disrupted them. The thief got a hold of Little Luke and demanded the golden torc or else he'd kill him. With no choice, they gave him their precious necklace.
The next day, Little Luke headed home to recover his injuries. Sean and Annie were then left under The Colonel's (Miss Henry's and Miss Martha's brother) supervision. The Colonel helped them retrieve their golden torc by winning it back through a gambling game with the thief.
The Colonel also joined Sean's and Annie's journey to California. They traveled in wagons through the desert. When they were almost at their destination The Colonel disappeared leaving a note that explained that he severely injured his leg and couldn't move on with them. The children must not give up and continue their quest.
