A legendary treasure...A secret palace...One big adventure!
When 12-year-old Brock Ford is invited to Africa with his globe-trotting anthropologist uncle Dirk Armstrong, he jumps at the chance to ditch his boring hometown to spend the summer on safari among wild animals and friendly natives. But Brock and Dirk are barely off the train in Nairobi when mysterious artifacts begin to surface which could prove the existence of an ancient lost treasure. It's an adventure that takes them over the Serengeti plain, through an underground Chagga fortress, and up the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro itself. Their discovery might be the greatest archaeological find of the century, or it could trap them within the mountain's volcanic depths forever.

If you love a mystery this book is for you! The Lost Treasure of Kilimanjaro is a fast-pace action novel full of twists and turns in a mysterious land. It's an excellent read that no reader will want to put down once started.
A book written for youngsters, this ¿kid¿ read it all at one sitting. I even put aside a horror/suspense novel written by the master that is currently a best seller to read it. This is a story full of the adventure of exotic lands and peoples, and the mysteries of lost tribes and treasures. Reminds me very much of the ¿Indiana Jones¿ stories. Mr. Overby has a real talent for writing, and I feel he will go far in his chosen genre.
