Big Dog growls. “We are being pursued by robbers. We were careful to guard our plans, but it is plain we were found out. It’s pirates. They want these maps and they want that gold. The fight is starting now.”
The swamp comes alive. It is filled with strange creatures…Bobcats, foxes, snakes, bats, and long-tailed weasels, to name a few. And then there are the alligators. Many of these creatures pose a threat to the patriots.
In the year 1795, Captain Big Dog and his patriotic crew aboard the ship Liberty Bella embark on a secret mission vital to the welfare of the young American nation—to secure our nation’s founding documents and to recover the stolen gold given to support the American Revolution.
They must evade pursuing pirates, navigate dangerous waters, battle their Swamp Rat adversaries, and overcome the perils found in the swamps of South Carolina. What challenges must Big Dog and his compatriots overcome to succeed in this mission? Will the Swamp Rats beat them to the prize? How many will sacrifice their lives in this endeavor?
Set in America’s colonial era, Big Dog and the Swamp Rats’ Gold weaves a story of adventure, mystery, and patriotism. Come join us in the latest book by Jean Leigh Claudette.
