Editorial Reviews

Review

"As if by magic, Mr. Smith presents the perfect combination of nostalgia and modern day. This exemplifies the summers I remember. Freely roaming all around, turning over rocks in creeks, exploring woods and caves while our imaginations provided limitless adventures. Kids being kids." - jv poore, Amazon reviewer

"This is a fun, well-written, family oriented book containing a good mystery...highly recommended!" - Richard and Liz, Amazon reviewer

"We read it aloud and all four of my kids sat enthralled for hours." - Laura C. Wiggins, Amazon reviewer

"My 8 and 11 year old active boys couldn't put it down!" - Hope Dalton Woolverton, Amazon reviewer

"It may just inspire you to look for your own adventure." - H White, Amazon reviewer

"All of my kids are very eager for me to get them the next books in this series...Definitely recommend!" - J. Leite, Amazon reviewer

"My nine year old, reluctant reader fell in love with the story. The mystery and adventure drew her in right away...a perfect read aloud for my seven year olds. This fast paced, wholesome adventure story will leave you wanting to take a hike with your kids!" - Reader of Summer of the Woods

About the Author

Steven K. Smith writes The Virginia Mysteries, a middle grade adventure series with a twist of history. Steven lives in Richmond, Virginia, with his wife, three sons, and a golden retriever named Charlie. Born and raised in rural northwestern New Jersey, he moved to Virginia in 2011 and quickly fell in love with its history and charm. You can find him at MyBoys3.com, where he blogs about the adventures of raising three young boys. When he's not writing, Steven works in e-healthcare and enjoys coaching his boys in sports, hiking and camping, photography, and taking naps. Some of his favorite children's books include Where the Red Fern Grows, Rascal, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Bridge to Terabithia, and the Chronicles of Narnia series.
