Read an Excerpt

Nothing compares to the thrill of the hunt. You're hiking through a forest of ancient hemlocks on a forgotten road, following a trail of cunning riddles to something cryptically referred to as the "wizard of the wood." You check your compass, then spy a gnarled oak just upstream that looks eerily like an old man. At its feet you find the cubbyhole that you know will be there, and pull out a small box containing some of the most exquisite stamp art you've ever seen.

I am doing a letterbox scavenger hunt at my job the for local teens. This book really helped me better understand the whole concept. I registered with the main letterbox sites and am really looking forward to going out and finding some boxes with my daughter and planting some (not work related) boxes of my own!
