Back Cover Reading:
A thunderous sound echoed through the stormy Nebraska countryside. The hair on the backs of their necks stood up. But it wasn’t lightning. For twins Kent and Kyle Morris, there was only one creature who could make such a loud noise—it was Scarface!
When they set out on an adventure to discover the secrets of the huge thunder chicken and finally bag him, another surprising opportunity arose that could change the fortunes of their family forever.
Chasing the old turkey was put on hold while they began hunting for something even more exciting—hidden treasure! The map they found on their property could lead them to the untold riches left there by the French in the early days of our country.
But they weren’t the only ones hunting for the treasure. Someone else was willing to do whatever it took to claim the prize. When the next violent storm passed through, would the twins be the first to unlock the mystery of the treasure chest? Would Kent and Kyle find the answers they sought or would more trouble come their way? Would old Scarface win in the end or would they finally learn his secrets?
