A Bone to Pick: A Peggy Henderson Adventure by Gina McMurchy-Barber

Peggy loves archaeology.  She enjoys the challenge and the discoveries.  So she's sure her adult friend will take her on the new dig.  Even when she finds out it's to be a class on how to do it, she's ready to volunteer her help.  Unfortunately, they don't need her help...

Dundurn and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 15th.  This is a series so you can read the earlier books while you wait.

I especially liked this story.  The author weaves a Viking story with a modern day discovery.  The paintings on the wall tell the story of a young Viking girl who had a warrior's heart.  This cave is a tribute to her.  When a local girl shows Peggy the cave, she asks her to keep it a secret.  Peggy is torn in half.  She, too, wants to learn the story and claim the find.  But they don't have the resources and it really belongs to the public.  When she can't find her friend and tells the other professor, he acts like it's his find!

The matter gets resolved and Peggy even learns to cook.  This is another good story in this series.  I've enjoyed reading them.  Peggy is impulsive and always ends up in trouble, but she means well.  That's about the best a child can do.
