Go for the Gold is packed with mystery and adventure in the great outdoors—think Indiana Jones meets The Hardy Boys with a moral lesson snuck in for good measure.
Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) July 02, 2013
What happened to Blackbeard’s treasure? Salvage operations continue off the coast of North Carolina to recover portions of Blackbeard’s command ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, but little treasure has been retrieved. John W. Nichols’ novel “Go for the Gold,” the first book in the new Honch Wilson series, is an action-packed thriller aimed at reading fun for tweens. The story is set in the imaginary town of Mineville, North Carolina, nestled along the Bonner River. Henry Wilson’s ancestor, the founder of the town, collected clues about Blackbeard’s treasure, and left them behind without discovering the secret location. Henry uncovers those clues, along with an ancient pirate map, and embarks on a quest to find the gold. A web of evil ensnares Henry as he discovers how far some men will go for the gold. Henry teams with an FBI agent to locate a kidnapping victim and risks his life in a daring attempt to save his friends. The treasure hunt leads Henry to examine his values and discover true riches. Henry’s Grandpa and Aunt Gwynn are college professors who slip historical dialogue into the action, giving the book a solid historical component.
