Twelve-year-old Page Williams is moving. She’s leaving behind her dad and the only home she’s ever known, heading for Texas and the remote canyons of Big Bend National Park, where her mom will teach in a one-room schoolhouse.

At first reluctant and angry, Page soon grows curious and intrigued. When she is greeted by her new schoolmates, a mountain lion named Carmencita, and a family of skunks that parades across her patio at night, she discovers there is much more to her new neighborhood than dry heat and rattlesnakes. Just beyond the schoolhouse, the Ghost Mountains rise, home to panthers and legends of lost gold. Soon, Page finds herself at the center of adventure and treachery as she sets out to uncover the treasure and secrets of Panther Peak.

A novel that breathes with the spirit of the West, The Treasure of Panther Peak is packed with wild animals, horses, ghosts, and hidden dangers. Most of all, this is a story of two people—mother and daughter—discovering new strength and independence.
