About the Book Joanie has been raised on the island legend of the Spaniards' treasure, a story passed down from generation to generation. In 1791, the Spaniards discovered the small island, and named it Lasqueti. They buried their treasure in a cave, intending to return for it. Something happened, and they never did.

Determined to find the truth, Joanie and her friend spend two terrifying nights lost in a cave searching for the treasure. This is the story of their adventure.
