The Secret of Fiery Gorge


This book was in my stack for summer reading. It's by Wilson Gage, the author of Miss Osborne-the-Mop. I read it yesterday and it was perfect for reading while watching the children swim.

I was reminded of Gone-Away Lake and Return to Gone-Away because the story takes place in the summer with a younger brother, an older sister, and a boy cousin. But in this book the family vacation is in the mountains of North Carolina and the children figure out the mystery regarding the gorge while meeting some kind local people and observing some strange men. Nothing earth-shattering happens, but it's a nice book for children.

Oh, cool!! I haven't read this. But Miss Osborne-the-Mop is a classic. I love it! Thanks for reminding me of that book.
