The Treasure of El Patron
For the last few years, 13-year-old Tag Jones has been running the family bait shop on the sandy Bermuda beach. He has been helping earn money ever since his father died in a scuba diving accident while searching for a legendary Spanish shipwreck. Whenever he has free time, he dives with his best friend in the azure water above the hazardous coral reefs. Tag can't believe his good luck when two wealthy tourists rent fishing equipment and give him a 20-dollar tip. But the men don't seem to know anything about fishing. As Tag wonders what these strangers are really doing, the boys suddenly find themselves in dangerous water, way over their heads. Gary Paulsen, Newbery Honor-winning author, entertains young people with his fast-paced World of Adventure series. Filled with excitement and deep-sea diving lore, The Treasure of El PatrOn captivates the interests of readers of all abilities.
