Ted Dunagan, named 2009 Georgia Author of the Year in the young adult category for his debut novel A Yellow Watermelon, continues the saga of two adventuresome boys in this sequel, Secret of the Satilfa. Both books are set squarely in the Southern literary tradition as they reveal the lives of young Ted and Poudlum, friends despite the racial divide in rural Alabama in the late 1940s. In the fall of 1948, Ted and Poudlum have their post-Thanksgiving fishing trip to the Cypress Hole on the Satilfa Creek interrupted by unwelcome visitors -- fugitive bank robbers. They manage to escape and return to the Satilfa to search -- along with seemingly half the locals -- for money rumored to have been hidden by the criminals. However, Ted and Poudlum have a clue no one else possesses. Through their exposure to some memorable individuals, the boys grow in character and knowledge as they hunt for the missing treasure.
