  • Comments:

    Scrooge goes to Anaconda, Montana where he meets Howard Rockerduck who introduces him to copper mining. But as things goes well Scrooge receives a letter from his parents, who asks him to return to Scotland and help them save the McDuck estate. In this story Scrooge meets John D. Rockerduck for the first time.

    Don Rosa's own comments about this story can be read at Dan Shane's great The Life and Times of $crooge McDuck pages.

    Interesting facts:

    Don Rosa first named this story "King of the Copper Hill", but later changed it into it's final tittle "Raider of the Copper Hill" because he wanted to name chapter VIII "The King of the Klondike", but didn't want to reuse the "King" moniker.
