Treasure at Lure Lake
Twelve-year-old Bryce’s best laid plans for a backpacking trip with his grandpa seem about to fall through all because his big brother Jack is threatening to boycott the trip. But when Bryce stumbles upon a secret treasure map in his grandpa’s barn, he doesn’t mean to steal it or unearth a painful family secret that will explain the root of the brothers’ conflict. Bryce is determined to find the treasure even if it means lying to his grandpa.
As Bryce, Jack, and Grandpa hike to a remote cabin in the Rocky Mountains, sibling rivalry clouds the brothers’ judgment, and all Bryce’s plans for an epic adventure go downriver. The boys must work together to survive the dangers of the wilderness, and each other, or the treasure and their family’s secret may never see the light of day.
