Published by iUniverseBooks
It is 1918, and recently orphaned eleven-year-old Isabelle Lacey is tired of the adults in her life abandoning her. Now, she must leave the comfort and safety of Indiana behind to travel clear across the country by train and boat to stay at her uncle Arden’s fish camp at Lake Okeechobee, Florida.

When she arrives at the Everglades, Isabelle feels like she’s in a completely different world. Known as the last wilderness frontier of America, this water-filled landscape is populated with snakes, alligators, and a host of unsavory characters.

While exploring one day, she finds a shell rock inscribed with a map. Isabelle and her new Indian friend, Summer, are eager to track down the treasure, but danger awaits. Ruthless outlaws in the area will stop at nothing to turn a profit, even if it means kidnapping Isabelle. Will she be able to escape and finally find the treasure and happiness?

“This is a wonderful, fictitious perspective of Lake Okeechobee during the early nineteenth century. The author’s historical research of the lake and surrounding Everglades makes this story come alive through the adventures of an adolescent girl.”
—Butch Wilson, Clewiston Museum Director
