Summary
Tom goes with his Uncle Harvey to Peru, where they narrowly escape imprisonment and death as they hunt for buried treasure after tracking down a journal written by John Drake, a young relative of Sir Francis Drake, on a voyage to Lima in 1577. Includes biographical information on John and Francis Drake
Summary
After Tom Trelawney accidentally burns down his family's garden shed, Tom's parents, who are away on vacation, send him to stay with his eccentric Uncle Harvey in New York City. But Uncle Harvey is headed for Peru, supposedly to hunt for treasure, and means to leave Tom behind. Maybe Tom wouldn't have worked so hard convincing his uncle to take him along if he'd known what he was getting into. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
