Tony can hardly believe it. He's sailing with the wind, maneuvering through the narrow channels between the offshore islands with amazing skill. And he'sjust learned to sail! But suddenly Tony is confused. Which way had he come? Which way is he headed? And who are the mysterious couple with the high powered motor boat who are to busy searching beneath the water to answer his call for help?

Tony does some searching on his own. What he discovers leads him on a daring hunt for a 200-year-old shipwreck . . . and a dangerous confrontation with treasure hunters who will stop at nothing to keep Tony from learning their secret.

From Our Editors

Tony embarks on the summer of a lifetime when he goes in search of the Swallow, a ship that sank off the Connecticut coast in 1777. Taking his own small sailboat to the place where the legendary ship disappeared, Tony runs into an unforeseen twist -- the determined couple in the speedboat who are trailing him and who’ve decided Tony won’t ever get anywhere near the sunken ship! Newbery Honor recipient Avi writes a young adult novel of tremendous suspense and adventure in Windcatcher.
