The Mystery on Blizzard Mountain (The Boxcar Children Mysteries)
The Boxcar Children learn lots of interesting things about the Navajos — but best of all is a legend about an ancient Native American village that once existed nearby. Curious, the children begin digging there and uncover some valuable artifacts. But it seems someone wants the village to stay buried! The Boxcar Children tells the story of four orphaned children, Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny, who run away from the orphanage they have been placed in and create a home for themselves in an abandoned boxcar in the forest. There's lots of treasure to be found in this mystery with the Alden kids.
A hip new doughnut shop known for its bizarre recipes is opening up in Greenfield. Their shop has been a fixture downtown since just after World War II. The Boxcar Children stumble across a year-old time capsule with a mysterious journal inside.
It contains clues that lead the children around Greenfield and through the history books in search of a lost treasure. But questions remain. Who wrote the journal? And after years, will there be enough evidence to find the hidden treasure? The rescue is a long wait for the Boxcar Children, but the cabin is full of secrets.
