Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Ben Mozingo lives on a plantation in the swampy marshlands of South Carolina during the 1930's. When his father is shot and injured by a poacher, Ben searches for a legendary swamp treasure said to be buried beneath the ghostly form of a jack-o'-lantern. He hopes to find enough money to pay for his father's cure. Local history is heavily interwoven into this Depression-era story.
