Where to buy it


It's a prairie mystery... After hearing about a treasure that’s been missing for years, Ben knows that it’s up to him to find it! He and his sister Sarah—and their fearless dog, Scruffy—have the adventure of their lives fighting a fire, riding in a rodeo, exploring a spooky cabin, and solving the mystery of the lost treasure.

About the authors

Jackie Cameron and her family had horses and raised beef cattle on their farm near Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Her three children often helped move cattle from one pasture to another. She worked for many years at Swift Current’s public library, and at the central resource centre of both the Prairie West School Division and the Chinook School Division, which enabled her to travel to many schools in southwest Saskatchewan to assist librarians and teachers with classroom resource materials. Now retired, Jackie lives on an acreage outside of Swift Current, where she indulges her passion for reading and writing. She is involved in Write Out Loud, which organizes presentations by nationally and internationally acclaimed authors at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current, and is part of a small group that provides books to local seniors.

WENDI NORDELL has been drawing for as long as she could hold a pencil. It has always been a favourite pastime and eventually became an occasional job. While her three children were growing up, she painted many murals, including the pediatrics wing in a hospital, a school entrance, and in many homes. She also attended festivals and craft shows, selling hand-drawn gift cards, bookmarks, and illustrations. Now that her children are grown, she has pursued an illustration career, illustrating a dozen books in the last five years, mostly for children, but also including Edward Willett's science-fiction and fantasy poetry collection I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust. Recently, Wendi decided to improve her artistic skills and abilities by returning to the Alberta University of the Arts, pursuing a degree in illustration. Wendi has almost always picked up books based on their cover art, and if there are illustrations inside the book she thinks that’s even better. She truly hopes that her illustrations enhance readers' experience with books--including this one!
