The book reads like a Hardy Boys series, way less detective work but what a fun relaxing read. Sam is 8 years old and Derek is 10, and the exploring takes place in the Virginia woods behind their new home. Their parents allow them to explore the woods, which surprises me but maybe the woods isn't large enough for them to get lost.
I really felt that the author was able to put himself in a child's mind. It was as if he never lost his own memories of his childhood, but then again he has three sons, so I am sure that they jog his memory often.
This story is set in modern times but still has the feel of an old fashioned mystery and begins with the boys finding an old coin in the creek. An Indian head penny, I think. I remember those Indian head pennies, and I have a buffalo head nickel, a dime with a man on it with wings on his head, and wow! I just found an Indian head penny in my tiny collection that is just made up of a few coins that I kept before they went out of print, along with some foreign coins that I found on the streets of Berkeley, and a wooden nickel that I bought somewhere in Berkeley. And what kid doesn’t like to find money, especially old coins. Well, you see adults do too.
I certainly will be reading more of his books. The best thing about them is that these were stories that he made up to tell his boys at bedtime. What a neat father. My brother used to make up stories to tell me at bedtime, but all I remember is a part of a story about a turtle living in a pond, and the only reason I remember it is because he ended it with the turtle being turned into turtle soup, an ending that did not make me happy.
