A search for treasure…or a search for love?
Harry Jennings, a 1920s era newspaper reporter finds missionaries’ journals from the 1830s containing a treasure map. Harry follows clues in the diaries in a quest to locate legendary silver mines. In his search, he meets Cecilia Lake, a lovely and intelligent librarian who helps him hunt for Shawnee silver missing for hundreds of years.
As Harry’s search threads through the novel, contrasts between the cultures and beliefs of Elisha and Abigail Parker, Quaker missionaries and the Shawnee people are recorded in their their own words.
Join the Parker family by a campfire after a wearisome day traveling by covered wagon across the plain. How successful are the missionaries in “Christianizing” the Shawnee? This historical novel is part adventure story, part western, part love story, and a sad commentary on American greed dispossessing Native Americans from their ancestral lands.
