Eleven-year-old Mandie Shaw is nervous about her trip to visit her Cherokee relatives. The journey through a North Carolina mountain forest is full of dangers like stalking panthers, and she wonders if her dead father's kinspeople will even like her once she arrives. But the trip to the Indian reservation is only the beginning of Mandie's many adventures. When Mandie and her friends get lost in a secret cave, they discover a pile of gold left behind by a legendary Cherokee chief. Is it really cursed, as legend insists? Faced with kidnappers, thieves, and the Carolina wilderness, Mandie uses the strength she finds in her faith in God to choose the proper path - for both herself and the Cherokee people. A warm-hearted sequel to Mandie and the Secret Tunnel, Mandie and the Cherokee Legend provides all the thrills listeners of this series have come to expect, colorfully voiced by Kate Forbes's sparkling narration.
