This book was written for the young readers and will keep their interest to the end. I have given this book a four star rating and would recommend it to anyone with young readers.
I obtained this book in Kindle format from Amazon.
Josh Baker and Eddie Debord are two young boys who love nothing more than running the hills and riverbanks of their small hometown in West Virginia. Always searching for a good adventure, one day they find one! Inside an old red milk can they discovered down by the river, is a relic from the past. A document that will send them on an adventure of a lifetime! They will make new friends and new enemies and will find themselves drifting downriver, biking down old railroad beds, exploring hidden hollows and finding hidden secrets, all in search of a long lost jewel from the past; a pile of Confederate gold that went missing in 1903. They will cross paths with a belligerent Sheriff, an attentive Mayor, an inquisitive librarian, and a menacing mountain man while trying to connect the dots to this age old mystery.
Suspicion, danger, and sheer terror are around every turn and they must be careful! It could cost them much more than just a couple weeks of their summer vacation.
Be careful wishing for big adventures....one may find you!
