Description

FROM THE BLOG OF CAM WALKEROur biology teacher, Mr. Mora, had been planning an ultra-cool field trip to Willow Key (which is kind of like the Everglades). One humongous problem: We couldn't raise enough money for our class to go. But then the richest guy in town, Mr. Chapman Thorpe, made us a proposal that changed everything.So we got to go to Willow Key ( in an awesome seaplane!) and while down there we got to:1 DIVE THE WRECK OF A SPANISH GALLEON AND FIND SOME CLUES TO A LONG-LOST TREASURE2 HELP MR. MORA WITH HIS BOIMASS STUDY AND HELP PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT OF WILLOW KEY3 DISCOVER A HUGE SECRET ABOUT OUR FRIEND TYoh, and I probably should mention that we ran into a bunch of really bad dudes who tried to prevent us from ever leaving Willow Key.But I'm getting ahead of myself....

What better way to spend a lazy summer afternoon than hanging out with Cam Walker and the Outriders? Cam is breaking every safety rule of scuba diving as he navigates the murky waters of the water hazard that fronts the seventh green of the golf course at Bluffs Country Club...but "farming" golf balls is the Outriders' main source of income to finance their adventures. However, the Country Club members really don't like for kids to steal the ball they are currently playing, and Cam has to run for it in a very creative escape. This time they hoped to go to Willow Key to help their biology teacher, Mr. Mora, with bio-mass studies relating to water pollution. After other hilarious fund raising projects just don't work out as well as they had hoped, the richest guy in town, Chapman Thorpe, approaches Cam with an offer to fund the Willow Key project and even furnish a big seaplane to take the gang there...in exchange for a dive on the shipwreck of the dreaded pirate ship, El Trueno (The Thunder), for some artifacts. The legend is exciting and it's an offer too good to pass up. The expedition to Willow Key gets off to a great start, but everything goes south when Mr. Mora suffers a broken leg and then the kids meet up with a bunch of modern-day pirates and poachers who don't want to leave any witnesses. This fast-moving adventure filled with hair-raising danger, countered by Cam's brilliant ideas and the brave actions of the Outriders, will leave you breathless and wanting more...and that's good, because this is only the second book of the Outriders series. Ed Decter is a screenwriter-director-producer with lots of credits under his belt, but this is his first book series. He is a master at characterization and plot, and this story will keep you laughing and turning pages nonstop. Reluctant readers will beg for the next book in the series.show more
