Pablo Perez, known by many schoolchildren as Duct Tape because of his shoes’ composition, is poor and often the victim of bullying. Things change for Pablo, when he finds a 20 dollar gold coin. This small discovery marks the first step of a journey he will never forget.
Author Christopher Cloud invites readers to join Pablo, his sister and their cousin on their thrilling adventure in “Searching for the Treasure of Jesse James” (published by Archway Publishing), Cloud’s new juvenile fiction.
After finding the gold coin, Pablo buys a treasure map at the county fair for a dollar. Upon closer inspection, Pablo and his crew realize the map may lead to the treasure of none other than Jesse James, the famous outlaw.
With the help of Monroe Huff, an asocial cave explorer, the gang embarks on a treacherous three day expedition underground in search of the treasure. While hunting for the treasure, Pablo and company will face death numerous times, with only their wits to save them. Can Pablo find the treasure and silence the bullies once and for all?
