The Secret of the Gullah Treasure
Jackie Robinson Eddings entered a new world as the first Negro student to walk the halls of Beaufort Junior High. Thrown into a project with the red-neck class bully and a special-needs classmate, racial prejudices and societal biases take their toll as they research the legend of the Gullah treasure. A fluke unearths a private letter—a strange collection of symbols, letters and numbers—signed by Edgar Allan Poe that ties his “Annabel Lee” to the team’s project and propels them into deeper discoveries that threaten their lives.
Amid flashing twists of interred history, ghostly folklore and cryptic ciphers, The Secret of the Gullah Treasure weaves a veil of secrecy around a legend hidden within the fabric of the once enslaved Gullah people.
