Review:

Based on the children’s book by Lois Gladys Leppard, MANDIE AND THE CHEROKEE TREASURE reunites Mandie, a spunky teenager, and her friends and family as they head off on a new adventure.

Mandie and her two best friends must solve a series of riddles as they travel up a mysterious mountain to discover a long lost Cherokee gold mine. However, a group of thieves are also hunting for the gold. Mandie’s adoptive mother, Uncle John and her Cherokee “uncle” Ned chase after Mandie and her friends to rescue them from the thieves.

As Mandie pursues the gold, she learns that the real treasure is not the gold, but rather a family heirloom box hidden in the mine. The box holds the key to her family’s reconciliation. In the course of the story, Mandie discovers her biological mother and her uncle discovers his long lost romance.
