More exciting adventures with Amanda and Leah, this time in Alberta, Canada
By Christa Polkinhorn
Amanda is overjoyed. Leah, her best friend from England, is coming for a visit. Amanda and her parents have a whole sightseeing tour ready for her. They take her horseback riding, on a cattle drive, they visit a dinosaur museum, and Leah gets to meet Armanda’s extended family. Everything seems perfect until Amanda finds a stone one the cowboys lost. She soon realizes that quite a few unsavory characters are very interested in this stone and she wants to know why. Leave it up to spunky, feisty Armanda to get herself and her friend into a lot of trouble. This is another fun read for the young and the young-at-heart, full of quirky characters and fascinating adventures. And you learn some very interesting facts about that part of Canada.
Amanda is delighted to show Leah around Alberta during her visit from England. They take in the Calgary Stampede, go on a cattle drive, visit Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, spend time with the dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum and explore the crazy Hoodoos. When Amanda finds a stone with a unique mark on it, she doesn’t think it’s important until everyone seems to want it – including a very ornery cowboy. Is this stone worth ruining Leah’s holiday and placing them both in danger? Spend time with Amanda as she explores her own country while attempting to decipher the mysterious writing on the stone and keep it from those determined to take it from her.
