RUNNING SCARED (MYSTERIES
IN OUR NATIONAL PARKS, 11)
Washington, D.C. : National
Ashley and Sam are very excited about getting to explore the caves at Carlsbad
Cavern. Jack is not too excited about all the bats though. The children
have been given a great opportunity to visit the caves since their parents
are researching Carlsbad. Jack is especially happy that Sam can come along.
Sam has only been with the family for a few weeks. His mother has been
put into drug rehab and Sam was placed with Jack's family until something
could be worked out. Jack feels very protective of Sam. During the tour
of the underground caves, Sam gets spooked and runs off. Jack and Ashley
go searching for him and very soon they realize they are hopelessly lost.
To top it off, they have stumbled across a couple of thieves. How are they
ever going to get out of the cave?
