When assigned a genealogy report, Andy discovers a black sheep in the family.  Whatever Cole Joe Bonner did it was serious enough for his name to be crossed out in the family bible.  Although his great aunt Winnie tells Andy to not ask about Coley Joe, once he finds a photo of Coley Joe and sees his resemblance to this forgotten relative, Andy just has to find out more about him.  Andy’s search unnerves someone who follows up a threatening phone call with a threatening letter.  Who cares about a theft that took place over 100 years ago?  Andy cares, and obviously, now someone else does too!  Find out who and why in Search for the Shadowman by Joan Lowery Nixon.  (show my family tree)  (Mary Huebscher, Librarian, Holy Cross High School, San Antonio, TX 78228 <>)
