Rockerduck , who will grow up to become one of Scrooge's main rivals.

The Story – Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Vol. 1 – 2 ()
Glomgold later became the second richest duck in the world. He meets many famous historical figures but his search fails. During his years there he meets the saloon owner, singer and occasional thief "Glittering" Goldie O'Gilt.
His search for gold succeeds. Scrooge is now He starts building a small financial empire; by , at 35, he has become a billionaire.
Scrooge, Matilda and Hortense are the last of the McDuck clan. Scrooge settles in the small village of Duckburg , Calisota , United States, which he chose as his home base. The fourth chapter, Raider of the Copper Hill 15 pages continues Scrooge's adventures in the Wild West, picking up the story after a few years, when he has to quit his job as a cowboy and becomes a prospector instead, getting intangled in the founding of the world famous real-life Anaconda copper mine.
He's given a few helpful hints on prospecting by a rich man called Howard Rockerduck the father of Scrooge's present-day rival, John D. Rockerduck -- who was, though created by Carl Barks, used only once in a Barks story, but went on to star status and major antagonist in European-made Duck comics.
It gets to be quite a battle in the end.
The fourth chapter is interesting in several ways; partly because it brings about a marked change in the young Scrooge -- a change that starts out slow, but becomes more and more evident in later chapters: he begins losing his faith in humanity. Until now, he's been a fairly idealistic young duck -- there has been jokes about the classic McDuck stinginess and greed before, but Scrooge's desire for riches has been more rooted in a wish to restore his family to its former greatness than anything else.
Above everything, he's been convinced that people, on the whole, are good -- yeah, the lesson with his first-earned "worthless" dime has told him that there are many crooks in the world, and he's always since been on the look-out for, and ready to take up the battle against, less-than-honest people Now, however, he discovers that even people he's considered as friends can be just as greedy, nasty and dishonest as the crooks. In the small community of prospectors, everyone has looked out for each other and gotten along fabulously, always ready for a friendly chat or a helping hand.
As soon as Scrooge looks like he's going to strike it rich, though, everyone turns on him and think only of grabbing as much as they can for themselves.
It'll take some time yet, but from hereon Scrooge is going to become increasingly nasty and edgy, and his idealism will be shoved away by his increasing greed and hunger for profit. In the end, he ends up with only just enough money to return to Glasgow and help the family out with a big family crisis. We get a lot of foreshadowing here, especially since we for the first time get a real feel of the temper of Scrooge's youngest sister, Hortense, whom we've only seen as a baby in previous chapters but now is starting to grow up There is no longer any doubt that we're looking at the girl who will eventually grow up to be Donald's mother.
This, possibly more than anything else, was seen as a huge sensation in Europe when the comic was launched. It made the front pages, it was a top news story: Donald Duck's parents finally revealed!
In fact, the names of Don's parents were thought up by Carl Barks himself, but he never used them in any stories, and they've been obscure -- at least until The Life and Time of Scrooge McDuck was published.
After having saved his family castle, Scrooge once again sets out to make his fortune -- prospecting seems to be something he has a talent for, so he returns to that; this time travelling to Africa, since it's , and gold has been discovered on Witwaterstrand ridge.
This is where we find him in chapter six, Terror of the Transvaal, 12 pages trying to strike it rich in the African wilderness. Remember what I said earlier about Scrooge beginning to lose his faith in humanity? Well, said faith takes another blow here, and hardens him even further: He saves the life of a stranger, and the stranger repays him by stealing all his food and gear and leaving him to die in the African wilderness.
From here on, the kid gloves are off.

Now, Scrooge knows for certain what he had only begun to suspect back in chapter four: He's going to become a great man, and great men do not only lead lonely lives, but they make enemies wherever they go. It's a very bleak and pessimistic life philosophy, but it's one that'll be the main drive behind everything Scrooge does from now on.
Let me hear again how Disney is only for babies? The guy who has cheated Scrooge, though Scrooge never finds out his name here, turns out to be yet another figure we'll see more of in years to come, namely his perhaps biggest rival: Flintheart Glomgold. DuckTales viewers as well as Duck comic readers will no doubt know of Flintheart, the second-richest duck in the world and one of Scrooge's bitterest enemies -- just as tough and hard-working as Scrooge himself, but far less honest and decent.
Let's just say that their final confrontation in this chapter does not end well for Flintheart.
Being rolled in tar and feathers is the least of his concerns. Unfortunately, Africa turns out to not be the ideal place for a prospector like Scrooge, so in chapter seven, The Dreamtime Duck of the Never-Never 15 pages we find him in Australia.
This chapter might just be the most mystical of all the chapters, centering as it does around an old Australian shaman that Scrooge meets, who's on some sort of pilgrimage journey to several ancient caves in the Australian outback, to view the several-thousand-year-old cave paintings and learn the story they tell. The story turns out to be about a creature called "The Great Platypus," who turns out to have a lot of things in common with Scrooge himself.
And here we come to chapter eight, King of the Klondike 24 pages which is in many ways the big climax of the story.
The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck 1 - The Last of the Clan McDuck
After a life filled with hardship and failures, Scrooge has been shaped into one of the toughest, hardest, nastiest and most dangerous globetrotters in the world -- and this is where it all pays off.
Because now, after sixteen years of world-travelling, he's joined the big gold rush of He's at the peak of his physical and mental shape -- and remember, this is the guy who two chapters earlier managed to cower a hole herd of wild animals with his fury and strength. Klondike proves to be a worthy opponent, as he struggles against both the wilderness and the lawlessness of civilization and comes out on top: He's truly the king of the Klondike here And here comes one of the biggest highlights of the entire story.
Note the cameo appearance of Glittering Goldie, Scrooge's one-true-love-that-never-was.During his years there he meets the saloon owner, singer and occasional thief "Glittering" Goldie O'Gilt.

Now, fast forward several decades, to the early s, when a comic artist and Barks fanatic by the name of Keno Don Rosa was approached by the publisher Gladstone with a suggestion to do what he so much wanted to do, but nobody had ever attempted before: write and draw a biography on his favorite character, Scrooge McDuck.
