Phyllis A. Whitney: Secret of Goblin Glen

Secret of Goblin Glen by Phyllis A. Whitney was published by Signet in November 1974. Camberhill's one claim to fame was the unsolved bank robbery! Several generations tried to find the hidden money with the treasure map but all had failed. Trina was visiting and wanted to find the treasure to clear the name of an ancestor who was implicated in the crime.

Allan Kass illustrates two teens digging for the treasure in an eerie spot. I like the action pose of the cover and the expressions on the their faces as they check to see if someone is coming. There is an urgency that Kass gets across to the reader that they need to find the treasure and quickly!
