The Treasure Of Moonlight Ridge
By Ramey Channell
The Moonlight Ridge books are southern literary fiction incorporating elements of 1950s southern folk culture, adventure, magic realism, and humor. The two precocious protagonists, Lily Claire Nash and Willie T. Nock, use their wits and knowledge of the mountain to solve mysteries in the woods of Moonlight Ridge, their mountain home near the small Alabama town called Eden. After rescuing a lost infant in book one, and meeting witches on the mountain in book two, in The Treasure of Moonlight Ridge the two protagonists meet a mysterious visitor in the middle of a snow storm, discover a secret code message that leads to a treasure map, and evade kidnappers as they search for hidden treasure at Christmastime on the mountain.
