"Mandie and the Cherokee Legend" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “A mysterious legend among the Cherokee people tells of some long-lost gold, hidden for centuries. Would it truly bring a curse upon the one who found it?”

Series: Book #2 in “Mandie” series. (Read Book #1’s review Here!) {There also is the “Young Mandie Mystery” series, (Book #1 review Here and Book #2 review Here!) but they do not connect together well}

Spiritual Content- Matthew 5:10 at the beginning; Talks about God; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God; Prayers & Blessings over food; A few Scriptures are quoted, mentioned, and prayed; Uncle Ned referrers to Heaven as the “happy hunting ground”.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘dumb’, a ‘stupid’, two ‘shut up’s; A tiny bit of sarcasm; Tsa’ni is rude to & tricks Mandie (she tries not to hate him, but it’s hard); A mention of an Indian warrior who was shot (no details); A boy gets his foot stuck in a trap (barely-above-not-detailed); Mentions of drunks, moonshine & bootleggers.  

Sexual Content- Noticing handsome boys and beautiful girl; Joe intends to marry Mandie when they’re grown & mentions about it.

-Amanda “Mandie” Shaw, age 12

My personal Rating-
(and a half)
I’m not one for Indian stories, so MPR is lower, but I still enjoyed it. The little bit of romance between Mandie & Joe is so sweet but some parents might not want their younger daughters reading it.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
