Description: Nine-year-old Molly Brown lived and breathed "that river." After her mother died, it was just her and her dad, Paul, and of course "cappy" her ailing grandfather. With all cappy's medical bills, Paul's only choice is to sell everything, including the family home, and move away. But, Molly can't leave her friends and the river, especially the river... it's been her whole life! She has to make a plan! Her mother used to share stories of a lost treasure. Years ago, so the legend goes, a dying soldier hid stolen gold down the river, enough wealth to "solve all Molly's problems," but was that just a legend? Molly's mother had the research to prove it, but never found it, and now Cappy was too sick to help, and Paul just didn't believe. It was up to Molly and her friends, the "lil river rats" to find the treasure and save all she has known. But, it will take this rag tag group of kids on a journey down river on their homemade boat and into the unknown. With every journey, Faith, Truth and Courage!
