Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
""The Washington Pursuit" is a "DaVinci Code" for young adults, involving George Washington, a treasure he's stolen from the British after the Battle of Brandywine during the American Revolution and a young boy whose mother has committed suicide. In continuing her mission of uncovering the treasure, Ernie Goodman and his best friend, Bobby Donatelli, embark on a journey of history, redemption and discovery, not only of Washington's treasure but also of Ernie's self-worth and family. "The Washington Pursuit," a treasure-hunt novel, is set in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, a suburb just 90 minutes south of Philadelphia. Just days before Christmas, Ernie's mother commits suicide, her reaction at failing to solve the elusive Moravian Enigma. Scorned by his neighbors, community and drunken father, Ernie delves into his mother's work, starting with her journals and notes, hoping to resurrect his mother's name and reputation along with George Washington's loot. Along with Bobby and their teacher, Mr. Snyder, Ernie follows ancient clues from Philadelphia through the Lehigh Valley in a modern-day scavenger hunt to solve the mystery left by George Washington over 300 years ago. Combining factual events from a vital part of American history along with a young man's struggle for redemption, "The Washington Pursuit" is a tale of adventure and mystery, discovery and loss, hope and despair"-- Provided by publisher.
