TIDE TREASURE CAMPER by Elizabeth Rider Montgomery


Email this review


In 1958, this writer's Second Fiddle Sandra told of a summer camp experience of a girl who had had a long bout with rheumatic fever; now for a younger age group (perhaps even younger than this category) Betsy who had had almost no vision since early childhood is able to go away after a corneal transplant restores her sight. But she is determined not to be protected or pitied and refuses to ask for help (she can't even read or write). For a time she is ostracized as ""different"" and at the end she learns -- during an exciting treasure hunt- to ask for help. A sympathetic situation and a friendly lesson which other youngsters can accept.
