Publisher Comments:

You asked for them, and here they are...the pre-chapters, the post-chapters, and the in-between chapters of Don Rosa's Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck! In "The Cowboy Captain of the Cutty Sark," Scrooge imports Texas Longhorn prize bulls to Indonesia, matches wits with the wily sultans of Java, and tames the explosion of Krakatoa with the help of his old friend Ratchet Gearloose. Next, Scrooge becomes "The Vigilante of Pizen Bluff" when he and his uncle Pothole join P. T. Barnum, Geronimo, Buffalo Bill, and Annie Oakley on a mission to recover money stolen by the Dalton Boys. "The Prisoner of White Agony Creek" is an all-new adventure for young Scrooge, making its debut in this volume! When Scrooge resolves to teach his old flame, Glittering Goldie, the value of honest work, it involves forcing her to work his claim in the gold fields. The vintage Hearts of the Yukon follows up on this, telling of Scrooge's later efforts to make amends with the frosty Goldie. In "Sharpie of the Culebra Cut," Scrooge and his sisters' gold prospecting interferes with the construction of the Panama Canal, requiring no less than Teddy Roosevelt to intervene! Finally rounding out the collection are two slightly unusual takes on Scrooge's life. In "Of Ducks and Dimes and Destinies," Magica De Spell travels back in time to steal Scrooge's Number One Dime before he can even earn it. Then, in "Dream of a Lifetime," the Beagle Boys invade Scrooge's subconscious mind (!) and wreak havoc during dream-versions of the various Life of Scrooge chapters.
