About the Book

“Treasure On Beaver Island” is a work of fiction which is set in the mid 1940’s. Young Ed Nolan is a farm boy who finds a map hidden in the barrel of an old muzzle loader rifle. Intrigued, he pursues the map’s possibilities as he pages through an ancient diary which has been handed down to his mother. Problems with a strict and uncompromising father add to the plot. The diary is the original manuscript, and old Eli Yoder is an impossible speller, as well as having almost complete disregard for English grammar! Ed decides to go after the treasure, but many difficulties stand in the way. Will the treasure be found? What exactly does the treasure consist of? Read “Treasure on Beaver Island” for exciting answers to these questions, as well as to learn about old Eli’s adventures in the white pine logging business in the forests of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the 1820’s.
