The best American Girls Mystery so far. I liked it a lot. Good, yet not too predictable plot.

Beautiful gift copy!!

Josefina lives on her family's New Mexico homestead in the 1820s. She is fascinated when a mysterious man with an injured leg is brought to her house and she and her family must care for him. While laundering his clothes, Josefina accidentally discovers a treasure map in a pocket. Could it lead to buried treasure somewhere in the hills around her house? This story begins slowly, but methodically weaves in clues as it builds on the mystery. Background information is carefully integrated, in Josefina's story, which is rich with tales of buried treasure and local traditions, foods, and crafts. This book include a historical note with color photographs and illustrations.

This is a great educational book and interesting and piques your curiosity as well.I am an adult and I have read this book several times. I am only parting with this book because I have 2 of them.
