Legend of Arterburn Lake

In 1877 the first and largest train robbery of the Union Pacific Railroad took place in Big Springs, NE. Sixty thousand dollars of uncirculated twenty-dollar gold coins were stolen. Some of the coins were never recovered.

One hundred and thirty three years later (2010), three young teenagers meet when two are forced to spend the summer with their grandparents in western Nebraska. The trio is comprised of two girls and one boy from single parent homes, whose mothers are struggling to make ends meet. Visiting a local museum, they learn about the train robbery and the missing gold. When they discover it was very near their grandparentís home they concoct a scheme to search for the missing loot.

Deceiving the mother and grandparents, these over-confident young teens secretly slip away for a weekend treasure hunt on horses, with a pack mule thatís never carried a pack, cell phones with no way to charge them, and a GPS device that only confirms theyíre in the middle of nowhere. They quickly discover I-pods and lip-gloss donít make good survival tools. 

Mother Nature forms an attack while the three are camped near Arterburn Lake; the spot that legend explains might be the burial ground for the missing gold. They encounter a Nebraska summer storm, complete with high tornado-like winds, large hail, an electric sky, and gallons of rain, causing their horses to bolt and run, not to mention the wildlife that pays them nightly visits. 

Nerves frayed, hungry--junk food doesnít provide much energy--tired and disappointed, the three make plans to return empty-handed. Then one of the girls spots what she thinks could be a clue. Is it really a clue? Will it help them find the gold or has someone else already discovered it. If it turns out to be a clue, is a one hundred year old clue worthless after so many years have gone by?

It's not unusual to think one's camp counselors are inhuman, but it's rare such suspicions are true.  "Secret of Dragonfly Island" tells the story of fourteen students as they become trapped on a remote island with no way to contact their families, and camp counselors with the strangest odors and habits.  A story of survival, mystery, and adventure, "Secret of Dragonfly Island" is an exciting read for young readers, highly recommended.
