After a long Nova Scotia winter of playing hockey, Lauchie convinces his mother to let him fish lobster for the summer with a close family friend. One day out on the lobster boat, Lauchie pulls up a trap that holds a very old, carefully sealed containera gift from the sea. In the crock he finds an antique pistol, a letter dated 1608 from a Scots doctor whose ship sank in a storm, and a map describing where to find gold and silver coins salvaged from the ship. What ensues is a dangerous quest into a hidden cave tucked into a coastal cliff. Suspenseful and riveting, Lauchie’s adventure is also a journey of self-discovery on which he learns valuable lessons about himself and his community.
