An ancient mystery, an astounding discovery, a medicine man with magical powers—a girl, her brother and an intriguing island boy on a perilous trek through the jungle. . .
THE MYSTERY OF NAN MADOL
When Sidney and her brother Peter fly with their father to the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia, they expect to live in a beautiful native-style home in a tropical paradise. Sidney wants to solve one of the greatest mysteries of all time—who built the ancient stone city of Nan Madol on Pohnpei a thousand years ago? Giants? Godlike creatures from another planet?
On the island, conditions are more horrifying than Pete and Sid had ever imagined. Beginning on the very first night, frightening intruders are sent by the Nanmarki, the king of Nan Madol, to scare them away from the mysterious ancient ruins. Then 14-year-old islander Jabro takes Sid and Pete on a trip that turns into a dangerous struggle for survival in the jungle.
