Sandy and the Weird Sisters — YA Fiction

Posted on May 26, 2015 in Fiction, New Releases, YA/Juvenile

The Sandy Hunter Saga — Book One by J. D. Newman Growing up, making choices, being responsible for yourself and the choices we all make might seem everyday to some, but for 12-year-old Sandy, it is a new and liberating experience.

When we find that, there’s a campsite just beyond it. We’ll find Gray there.” I had asked the question more to calm my own nervousness than to get an answer. I looked up at the sheer sides of the rock...

Special Internet Sale price of $10.95   Somewhere in Utah County, a treasure waits to be discovered. The coins called Brigham’s Bees were works of art. Using a makeshift stamping mill fashioned from a Mexican War cannon, master engraver and Mormon Bishop Samuel Woodbury hammered out a treasury for Brigham Young in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains — more than 3,000 gold coins. However, none of them were ever spent. On a cold autumn day in 1862, Bishop Woodbury disappeared with Brigham Young’s Treasury of Deseret while enroute to Salt Lake City. Some say Woodbury absconded with the treasure to California. Others say he was a Confederate sympathizer and the Mormon gold ended up in the coffers of the Richmond government...
