The Adventures of Tommy Tucker
by David L. Forand
Always the dreamer, Tommy Tucker's one desire is to become like his Uncle Ned. Imagine never having to "work" for the rest of your life. One day, this fifteen-year-old explorer discovers an ancient pirate map on the outskirts of St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
Tommy sets out to earn money through get-rich-quick schemes to pay for his expeditions.
