Book 3 : The Curse of the Golden Gato
Austin and his sister Katie have returned to visit Uncle Steve in Mountview, where they plan to work at the Nature Center for the summer. But Sarah, the Schmooney, becomes sick and they must help her find the cure in the Carolina Mountains. At the same time, two very dangerous brothers, Calvin and Woodrow Garner, are searching for gold in the very same mountains, seeking the answer to the mystery of the Legend of the Golden Gato. When their paths cross in the mountains, Austin, Katie, Uncle Steve and Amy come face-to-face not only with the menacing Garner brothers, but avalanches and deadly mountain lions as well!
