Wobar and the Quest for the Magic Calumet
Hardcover - English

A fantasy-adventure story about a boy born with a mustache and an ability to talk with animals. Wobar's adventures begin when he runs away from home after getting in trouble at his new school. Hiding out in a cave, he meets a cougar, Roxie, who becomes his best friend and constant companion. Wobar encounters the ghost of a Revolutionary War soldier who was given -- and had stolen from him -- a calumet or Native American peace pipe. The pipe has the power to end all wars and until it is found and returned to the American president, the ghost must remain in limbo. Wobar and Roxie travel to New Orleans - by freight train, boat and cargo plane -- where a gypsy fortune teller helps them with their quest.
