The Aldens visit South Carolina and learn a friend of theirs has an ancestor who was a pirate! They hunt for the pirate's hidden treasure, but someone else is looking for it too. Can the Boxcar Children find it before the next big storm hits the coast?
About the Author
Gertrude Chandler Warner grew up in Putnam, Connecticut. She wrote The Boxcar Children because she had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a caboose or a freight car—just as the Aldens do. When readers asked for more adventures, Warner wrote more books—a total of nineteen in all. After her death, other authors have continued to write stories about Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden, and today The Boxcar Children® series has more than one hundred books.
