The Case of Windy Lake by Michael Hutchinson

Four cousins who live on the reservation have become young investigators.  They enjoy solving mysteries.  They help their grandfather with chores and he always hears about the problems.  If they are lucky, they get to hear it, too.  But he's on to them and tries to keep them outside when he has private business.  This time they heard enough to get involved...

Second Story Press and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 18th.

The Mighty Muskrats are on another case.  There's a missing doctor.  They've found his boat but not the man.  As they try to determine where the best place to hunt him is, they learn things about nature, weather, and themselves.  While they work on the case, another relative of theirs has tied herself to the dock at a company she's protesting. She's trying to keep the water there safe from pollutants.

The tale of the lost doctor and the protesting lady are interesting.  Both of them change before the story ends.  Communing with nature can do that as does thinking about an issue can.

I enjoyed the Indians point-of-view.  This is not a long story but I found it a very good read.
