A Mysterious Stranger at Fort Mims!

     First, Jeff reads stories and accounts about historic Fort Mims. Then, he learns about a mysterious man who appeared there days before the Indian massacre. Next, Jeff has a dream that he and his pals go back in time to Fort Mims. What will happen to them at the fort? Will they meet the strange man? Will Jeff and his friends escape the terrible massacre?

     Jeff and his pals solve another mystery when he has a dream about going to Fort Mims, the site of one of the largest and most brutal Indian massacres in American history. An exciting trek to the fort, a strange presence, a threatening storm, a narrow escape from Creek Indians, and a first-hand view of the terrible massacre are all part of their scary adventure. As they embark on their perilous journey, they learn valuable lessons in friendship, trust, and courage—and about the terrible massacre at Fort Mims, located in Baldwin County, Alabama. Mystery at Fort Mims is the sixth book in The Bayshore Mysteries. Be sure to look for the other five books in the series.
