Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
A fun adventure in Hawaii! I am enjoying the National Parks Mysteries, as they truly give kids an excellent view of America's wonderful heritage and land.
Note to Parents: The only thing I disapprove of in this book is the fact that the kids somewhat believe that they are being chased by Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes. I do not generally enjoy taking the time to read fiction that makes mythical figures seem all to real -- but it was written all in fun.
Still looking forward to read about the next National Park.

The Landon family, Steven, Olivia, Jack and Ashley are off on the big island of Hawaii for Olivia to take a much needed vacation. Olivia who is a wildlife veteranarian has been asked to come to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and help figure out what is happening to the Nene, the Hawaii State Bird. While in Hawaii, they receive a call from Social Services in Wyoming asking them if they would mind bringing a young Vietnamese boy named Danny Tran back to his grandfather in Jackson Hole. The Landon's are foster parents with a big heart and an inability to say "No" when it comes to helping out with a child. While Olivia is at her meeting, Steve and the kids go off on an adverture of their own. Since Steve wanted to take some photos he allows the kids to go meandering through Devastation Trail. In the process they get off the trail and are lead to believe by Danny that they are being persued by Pele the Goddess of the Volcano. With all the exciting things that happen on this adventure I do not think you will be able to put the book down until you have finished reading it.
