The Mystery of the Black Raven (The Boxcar Children Mystery & Activities Specials #12) (Paperback)
Back in the days of the gold fever, one of the Aldens' ancestors was part of the Four Rock Miners, a group that met annually in Skagway, Alaska. The Aldens are keeping the tradition alive by attending a reunion with the descendants of the other miners.
Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by the book's success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden children.
