Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Sara Macel

“There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy’s life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.” -Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Riley grew up in rural eastern Washington. As a child he read Mark Twain’s stories of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and decided he wanted to be like those mythical boys. He wanted a life full of treasure and adventure. In the series Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting, photographer Jenny Riffle follows Riley out on his hunts and photographs the objects he collects. Riffle explores the line between documentary and fantasy. She portrays Riley as an adventurous character driven by the thrill of the hunt and the possibility of what he will discover.
