A mystery series based on a page from American history, featuring a trio of mischievous and determined young crime solvers Everyone knows that workers are using dynamite to blast an eight-mile train tunnel through the Cascade Mountains. But everyone also knows that explosives aren't allowed inside the isolated camp town of Scenic where the workers and their families live. So why did somebody hide a case of dynamite right near the schoolhouse? And why has it disappeared again? That's what ten-year-old Billy and his best friend Finn want to know. The boys' search leads them back to a thirty-year-old gold robbery-and face to face with a dangerous outlaw who will stop at nothing to retrieve his treasure. This fast-paced historical series offers young readers a satisfying mystery, well-drawn characters, and an authentic portrait of the rough and tumble life of a western camp town in the 1920s.
