Aliens have been living in the small mountainside town of Golden, New York for the past fifteen years. They did not complete their mission to find gold for their home planet Chora. Instead, they decided to stay on Earth and never contact their own gold-hungry race again. Without gold in its body, a Choran will die. Now, on the 4th of July weekend in 1969, Alan Jones and his teenage friends are rail riding on the abandoned train tracks up to Flat Top Mountain. They are on an adventure to find a mysterious UFO, but they will also discover secrets about the changes in themselves. Perhaps they will even save the human race.
