Welcome to Skeleton Point, just across the river from Amelia Island in Florida. Who would ever want to live in a two hundred year old house there, especially when it sits on the edge of the Enchanted Forest? Why is a mystery boat called the Golden Goose sneaking around in the fog out in the marsh near the house at Skeleton Point?

Meet Maggi and Cooter Moreau, and their friend and neighbor, Luci Hunter, as they sail Maggi’s boat, the Hermione, into a mystery of history. Introduce yourself to Martin and Albert Tibault, who’ve come all the way from Charleston, South Carolina, to involve them all in a search for buried pirate treasure. You’ll go back to a time when Florida was still a part of Spain, and the land was ruled by plantation owners who depended upon that greatest of evils, human slavery, to make their living.

You’ll also meet Oscar, a bold and dedicated dachshund, who points the way towards solving a mysterious riddle that has confounded Albert Tibault for years, a riddle that gives cryptic directions to buried pirate treasure. But will Luci Hunter risk taking the trail through the Enchanted Forest, past the ghosts of two centuries?

Join them all, along with Maggi and Cooter’s parents, Emily and Henri, as they discover how their ancestors came to meet one another and the famous pirate, Jean Lafitte. Best of all, find out the secret identity of Aldanezi Loubanna, and hear his strange tale of a long ago chapter of American history.
