“Shhh! Something’s up,” Andy hissed, not slowing down.
The others, too, began rushing up the hill, and it was Phil’s turn to quiet them in an urgent tone and signal for them to stay low. Nothing could have prepared them for what they saw when they got to the top.
“What are they doing?” Emily whispered, her eyes wide. “This is our land!”
“I don’t know,” Phil replied grimly. “Whatever it is, I’m calling the police.”
The skies are clear, the weather is beautiful, and the Bakers are eager to welcome a new family, the Wilburs, to the farm next-door. Phil, Abby, Andy, and Tom Baker are learning how to relate to their new friends when they discover a mysterious crate hiding an ancient ruby ring which triggers strange activity on the Wilburs’ farm.
A trail of clues leads to two conflicting stories of strife in the Old West, but it seems that the theft and aggression surrounding this ring haven’t stayed in the past. When the safety of both families is threatened, it’s up to the Bakers to figure out what is going on before it’s too late.
