Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zagora Pym has always wanted to be a desert explorer. Her father, Charlie Pym, is exactly that, and she's always loved to look over his maps of far away exotic places. One day she'd be trekking through the deserts of Africa and China, discovering hidden treasures from lost tribes. But Zagora would never have guessed that her chance to prove herself would come so soon. Like most adventures, it starts with a mysterious letter. The question is, how will this adventure end?

Zagora's dreams of desert exploration are about to come ture, but are she and her father and brother being followed? And will they ever make it back to civilization?

Synopsis:

Eleven-year-old Zagora Pym has always dreamed of becoming a desert explorer—and now she's on her way to Morocco! Her father, the renowned archaeologist Dr. Charles Pym, has received a mysterious letter from his partner, Pitblade Yegen, who was lost and presumed dead on their last expedition. Yegen is alive, and he needs Dr. Pym's help. 

Christine Brodien-Jones, author of The Owl Keeper, appeals to the explorer in every reader with this wild and harrowing adventure across the mysterious Moroccan desert.
