While spending their summer at Pawleys Island, SC, three cousins find artifacts which lead them to the discovery that Gullah slaves fled to northern Florida and merged with Seminole Indians to form Black Seminoles.

Atalaya, the summer home of Anna Hyatt Huntington of Brookgreen Gardens (SC) fame, is the setting for this 3rd through 7th grade mystery.  Nestled along the coast of Huntington Beach State Park, Atalaya is a National Historic Landmark.  While spending the summer with family, Eric who lives in NC along with Katie and Cally who live in SC are mysteriously led to a box hidden in a room ofAtalaya.  The artifacts the cousins find lead to information proving the merging of Gullah slaves with Seminoles in northern Florida. 

From The Secret of Atalaya...

As the slide show continued, the segment the cousins wanted them to see came into view. Allowing the slide show to move at its original pace, silence filled the room. No one spoke; no one moved; it was as if no one breathed.

“This is certainly interesting. None of the other pictures are like this, are they?” questioned Savannah. “There is definitely something eerie going on in this room.”

“Amazing,” was all that Winni could say.

“You guys are being contacted by a spirit,” responded grandma Pru. “This apparition has chosen you for some reason. This spirit has a message to give you.”

The cousins turned to look at grandma Pru. They were impressed with her intuitive response. Pru believed that spirits were present and that if they had left something unresolved in this life, they would return in order to seek help resolving it. They could not rest until this was done. “You have to find out what is in this room so that you can solve this mystery. There are answers waiting to be found,” grandma Pru said.
