Boy Fortune Hunters in Yucatan
The Boy Fortune Hunters in Yucatan
By L. Frank Baum
Foreword by David Maxine
Cover Painting by Eric Shanower
If you like the books by Iain Lawrence--The Wreckers, The Smugglers, and The Buccaneers--you'll love the adventures of Sam Steele. With the thrills of a young Indiana Jones and the action of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, Sam roves the ocean in search of adventure!
Hidden within the jungles of Yucatan lies the fabulous city of Tcha, built by a tribe from the lost continent of Atlantis and ruled by a beautiful High Priestess. In Tcha, rubies and gold beyond imagining wait for the person brave enough to reach the hidden city. The only outsider who knows the way to Tcha is Chaka, son of a Maya chief and heir to a throne unspoiled by Cortez's conquest of Mexico. But can Chaka elude death long enough to lead Sam Steele and his crew to the hidden city of Tcha? Shattering earthquakes, hostile natives, human sacrifice, warring tribes, and betrayal -- danger looms at every turn for the Boy Fortune Hunters as they dare to penetrate the secrets of Yucatan.
