"Convinced that her father truly had found Quivira, Nora puts together an expedition and takes a team up Lake Powell to the mouth of Serpentine Canyon. In the stark labyrinth of canyons and slickrock desert she will find the answer to both her greatest hopes and her deepest nightmare. For hidden in the shadows of the sunbaked cliffs are untold treasures, the solution to the greatest riddle of American archaeology - and implacable, suffocating death."--BOOK JACKET.

It was not a bad book but somehow, it just failed to grab me like other by the same authors. Maybe the predictability factor was just too high and that made it less of a page-turner for me

Scaredy Squirrel could NOT read this one. It gave me the creeps.
