Jackson’s Raiders and the Lost Confederate Gold is a fantastically fun adventure into a world of friendship, mystery, danger, and amazing treasure. Author D.J. Humphrey captures the essence of middle school age personalities with perfect comedic timing. The imaginative and clever story line keeps you guessing and slightly anxious for the young heroes as they work together to find the lost gold and their way out of secret passages that have been sealed since before the end of the Civil War—unlocking secrets of a startling mystery all along the way. It’s tailored to a middle grade audience but grown-ups will enjoy this story just as much. I can’t wait for their next adventure!
