This is the second book in the Mandie series - a Christian series for tweens. I read this as a child and really enjoyed all of the books. They are interesting and contain good lessons for young readers.
This is the 2nd book in the Mandie Series. From the back of the book:
A mysterious legend among the Cherokee people tells of some long-lost gold, hidden for centuries by an Indian chief. Would it truly bring a curse upon the white men who found it?
Can Mandie and her Cherokee friend outsmart their kidnappers?
When they explore the woods and find the entrance to a hidden cave, are they ALL in danger?
Wholesome, entertaining reading for young readers.
