Eleven-year-old Cooper and his mom run an antique store out of the old barn next to their house. Cooper dreams of a better life, so when he finds an old metal detector during one of his garage sale hunts, he begins searching his backyard immediately.

A poignant coming-of-age story and history lesson rolled into one. --Kirkus ReviewsThis beautifully written book is steeped in history and folklore all told through the eyes of an amazing eleven-year-old boy that only wants to have his mother act like a mother and the land to be free of hurt.
