Ted Dunagan continues the saga of two adventuresome boys, Ted and Poudlum, in Secret of the Satilfa, the sequel to Dunagan’s debut novel A Yellow Watermelon. In the fall of 1948, young Ted and Poudlum have their post-Thanksgiving fishing trip to the Cypress Hole on the Satilfa Creek interrupted by unwelcome visitors and fugitive bank robbers. They managed to escape and return to the Satilfa to search for money rumored to have been hidden by the criminals along with seemingly half the locals of their town. However, Ted and Poudlum have a clue no one else possesses, which leads to triumph they could have expected. Dunagan again demonstrates his ability to weave a strong narrative with easygoing prose.
