Secret of the Indian Mound
by WILSON GAGE Illustrated by Mary Stevens
Alec Coatsworth resented leaving home in the middle of the baseball season to entertain an unknown city cousin on his grandmother's Tennessee farm. But as soon as fun-loving Uncle Zan enlisted the boys help in digging for artifacts in a nearby Indian burial mound, an exciting summer began to take shape. Different in temperament and interests. Alec and Jimmy were drawn closer through their hard work, and on one issue they stood solidly together. For though Uncle Zan trusted the Indian ranger, Joe Walkingstick, the boys felt that there was something threatening in Joe's talk about his ancestors who might be buried in the mound. And it soon became obvious that someone, or something, was determined to keep them from their "dig"— by violence if necessary. Angered by the loss of their first precious relics, they set out to uncover the mystery and found themselves caught up in a frightening round-robin chase in the forest at night that led to a totally unexpected ending.
A swiftly paced story that realistically portrays the furious activity and inquiring interests of modern youngsters, Wilson Gage's first book will delight young readers. The illustrations by Mary Stevens aptly reflect the humor and zest in the story.
