Whereas the settings for the first two books in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series were inside the United States, the third book shifts to Brazil. When the two brothers fly south to visit their Uncle Charlie, a retired Merchant Marine who’d travelled all over the world before putting down roots in the Amazonian Rainforest, they have no idea what lies ahead. As the boys and their uncle travel further up river toward a remote village inhabited by the Minauri tribe and its wise old shaman, Hutano, the mood shifts and takes on a more foreboding nature. Jockabeb’s clairvoyant dreams once again foreshadow the danger lurking in the jungle outside the Minauri village. As a confrontation with the rival Wikola tribe and its evil shaman, Vengolus, draws closer, the boys learn a terrible secret that only their uncle and his good friend, Hutano, know. When Uncle Charlie and a Minauri war party head into the jungle in the dead of night, the boys are left alone with only women and children. Far from home, and with no one to protect them, Archibald and Jockabeb both hope that the blue feather dust will once again work its magic. In addition to learning interesting facts about the Amazon, the reader witnesses the classic battle between good and evil play out as the two brothers continue to mature and learn what true friendship really means.

About the Author

When Art Collins retired as a highly successful chairman and CEO of a Fortune 500 company, he didn’t write the book on leadership that many had expected. Instead, he decided that penning adventure stories that could be enjoyed by young and old would be far more interesting, not to mention much more fun. Borrowing two characters, Archibald and Jockabeb, from tales told by his father many years before, and drawing upon his own rich imagination, Art introduces the two young brothers to an incredible cast of characters—some human, some otherworldly—in locations that range from the mysterious forest behind the boys’ house to the lush and exotic Amazon. The nine book series reflects his love of the mountains and ocean, as well as his extensive travels that have taken him to every continent except Antarctica. Art currently divides his time between Chicago and the Vail Valley in Colorado.
