Description

The Golden Hawks want a clubhouse of their own. But where can they find one in their new housing development on the edge of the city?

First they try to make their clubhouse in Joe's bedroom, but their parents get angry when the kids hammer holes in the wall. Then they scare themselves silly looking for scrap wood in an empty--and spooky--apartment building. Finally they try to make money so they can build a clubhouse. Will the Golden Hawks ever have a place to call their own?

First published in 1978, The Golden Hawks is an honest and touching look at life on the edge of a Canadian city. A volume in the Where We Live series.
