KIRKUS REVIEW

If there is anything that ten-year-old Pod and his sisters love it is their parched little farm in the Southern United States. When continual drought threatens the farm's survival, Pod indulges in a fantasy in which he will find a supposed treasure, rumored to have been buried on his grandfather's land; perhaps then they will be relieved of the constant threat of hunger; perhaps then his grandfather will consider his pet coon dog less of a luxury. Throughout the book, Pod's dog is threatened with extradition until, finally, he is not only instrumental in finding a deep and plentiful well, but, he saves the lives of Pod and his sisters. Here is a solid boy's adventure based on suspense, action, local color, and, of course, sympathy for an unwanted but admirable animal.
