Overview

City kid Corbett (Griffy) Griffith III is back in Wisconsin, ready to leave his family troubles behind. Although divorce and two busy parents have left the eleven-year-old feeling invisible and alone at home in Chicago, Corbett is never really alone when he visits Whispering Pines Lodge thanks to Uncle Dell and his best friend, Pike, who pulls him into one mischievous adventure after another.

Back for a second summer's visit to Whispering Pines Lodge, he and Pike set off on their first adventure the very first day he's there. They go kayaking and exploring, and they help Uncle Dell around the lodge, cleaning up after messy guests. They even manage to get themselves caught in a massive storm!

When Griffy and Pike help a neighbor clean up after the storm, they uncover ancient artifacts hidden by the waters of Lost Land Lake. As they research the artifacts, they find themselves in a battle for the truth against a cunning, desperate archeologist. The rewards of this prehistoric discovery belong to a new friend, and Griffy is determined to help save his business no matter what. The boys won't abandon a friend. No way.

It's do or die now. Can they protect their find?

Editorial Reviews

ForeWord Reviews - Katherine Prior
Ancient Elk Hunt is a crisp, entertaining read that's sure to capture a kid's imagination. Moore, a former newspaper writer who grew up exploring Northern Wisconsin, brings this beautiful world to life with taut and descriptive writing. When the author describes the forest as "a never-ending blur of white pine and yellow birch trees ..." and the lake as "blue lake water sparkled and dance around them," you yearn to see this almost untouched wilderness.
ACS Reader's Haven blog - M. Hicks
This book not only explores God's beautiful outdoors but also teaches the value of friendship and helping others. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fishing, hunting, and outdoor activities.
