Jackson Brady desperately wants to be an average kid, which is part of why he wants to go to the Blackfoot Braves Society Summer Camp. But when you're the son of Clifford Brady, millionaire CEO of Brady Technologies, even the hills of Montana aren't far enough away. Immediately singled out by Craig, the camp bully, Jackson begins to regret his summer plans. Thankfully, he finds friends in fellow campers, and semi-outcasts, Austin and Mazzy, as well as Bill, the head counselor.

Jackson's favorite part of camp is hearing old Blackfoot legends and stories. The one he likes best is about Ma-Tas-Kah, the Sta-au (evil spirits), and the three chosen warriors. The warriors have yet to have been found, but when the time is right, they will save the people and the land from the evil Sta-au.

Jackson has been looking forward to the three day hike since he read about the camp, but Craig the bully picks him and his friends to stay and guard the camp, instead. Bill takes pity on them and gives them a treasure map to follow. While following the map, a freak storm rolls in. The three kids are forced to hide in a strange cave. There they find out that the legend might just be true. And they just might be the chosen warriors.

Such a fun story! I never got to go to summer camp, and now I'm even more disappointed. This would be so cool! Easy to read and fun enough to keep the youngest boy interested, not to mention the great illustrations. If there really were a camp like this, I would be there in a second!

Jackson Brady¿s father is a wealthy powerful man so all his life people either were nice to him to get to his father or were jealous of him. He hopes he will be treated like an average boy at the Blackfoot Braves Society Summer Camp however the camp bully knows who he is and constantly picks on him. When the camp goes on a field trip, Jackson and his friends Austin and Mazzy are left behind. Camp Counselor Bill gives then a treasure map and they go in search of the loot.--------- A sudden storm appears forcing the trio to take shelter in a cave where they meet the spirit of Ma-Tas-Kah, a great warrior who defeated The Sta-au skin shifters who can possess the bodies of anyone they choose. The three children are going to fight the Sta-au. Austin is given the wolf totem which gives him super speed Mazzy is the Raven which allows her to fly and see in the dark and Jackson is given the Buffalo token which gives him immense strength. When they realize that Bill is possessed and intent on destroying the camp they must find a way tostop him.-------- Targeted for the grade school crowd, teachers and students will like this tale that stars a rich boy who just wants to be treated normally and have real friends. Readers will relate to his need to belong, like his two friends, and find the supernatural elements of the story fascinating. The illustrations are quite detailed enhancing the delightful storyline.------------------ Harriet Klausner
