From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6-A trove of stories of lost or buried treasure, one for each state and four from Canada. Each selection includes a brief description of the loot (from Inca gold and buried mines to pirate booty and outlaw spoils) and its history as well as simple maps that indicate its general location. Helpful hints for treasure seekers stress the need to search for treasure legally and with permission. The book is packed full of the kinds of quirky details that middle graders love. The light and casual writing style is well suited to the topic and appealing to its audience, who will be more likely to browse the book than read it straight through.Donna L.
