Patrick and Giily search for a buried treasure to solve the
Illustrated by Velma llsley

A seasick trip to Smuttynose, a lonely island off the New Hampshire coast, was not a good beginning for a summer vacation. But Patrick soon finds that his cousin Gilly has plenty of excitement in store for him. Together they search for buried treasure that will save the island from sale-encountering, among other hazards, a dangerous cliff, a very suspicious stranger, and an unexpected truck ride.

How Patrick and Gilly solved the mystery at the Shoals is a story of two ingenious and likeable young people. The reader shares with them the excitement of the search and, with Patrick, grows to love the island as intensely as does Gilly.

The Author
Duane Bradley has been involved with books almost since her birth. She learned to read before starting to school and decided to become a writer at the age of five. Her career began when she published brief verse and stories in Sunday School magazines. By the time she was twelve, her poems had been read on Ted Malone's "Between the Book-Ends" radio program and included in his anthologies; and at the end of her teens, she had won a prize in a national short-story contest and was selling to national magazines.

Her first book for children, Cappy and the Jet Engine, was written because during an illness one of her four youngsters wanted to be entertained with information about jet propulsion. Two other science books for young readers followed: Engineers Did It! and Our World of Science, the latter written in collaboration with Eugene Lord, science teacher in the Boston Latin School. Mystery at the Shoals is her first mystery for young readers.
Duane Bradley, who is Mrs. George Sanborn in private life, lives with her family in a 150-year-old New Hampshire farmhouse.
