The Silver BoulderBook - 2000
Hot off the trail of their adventure involving a Group of Seven sketch, sibling team Rick and Willow Forster are back hunting for clues in the second Adventure. Net book. This time, they travel to the interior of British Columbia along with their film-maker parents.

To enhance the educational nature of these books, a teacher¬ís guide has been developed for each title. Readers of The Silver Boulder are invited to write to the Spaldings.
