Last Treasure, The
Audience: 5th Grade - 7th Grade
Since his death in 1881, the spirit of wealthy patriarch John Matthew Smith has been taking an annual walk around Smith's Mills, the square of homes he built for his large family. He's caused a few problems for his descendents & only for good reasons though. He has whipped up whirlwinds and even downed an oak tree or two in an effort to get his many descendants to patch up quarrels. While he was alive, he hid three treasures for his family to find. So far, two have been found by family when they desperately needed them. Now it is time for the youngest relatives to find the third treasure. Sending dreams to two Smith teens who have never even met, he ensures their return to Smith's Mills. With the kids figuring out the clues to find the treasure, this is a mystery, puzzle and ghost story all rolled into one.
