It seems wherever they go, adventure follows the Johnson family. This time it comes while they tour the historic cities of Savannah and Charleston. In addition to learning about the challenges of the early settlers, the boldness of the greedy pirates, and the determination of feisty women who helped save the heritage of these historic cities, Joey, Bobby and Katy encounter numerous ghost stories. When 10-year-old Bobby finds himself in a dangerous situation on Pawleys Island, South Carolina, he looks to a legendary ghost for help. Young readers won’t know they’re learning history; they’ll only know they’re having fun as they follow these kids on their latest adventure.
