My Name is Eleanor: A Bannerman Island Adventure

Author: Wesley & Barbara Gottlock

121 pages, paperback


The setting is Bannerman’s Island, a small island in the Hudson River, located just south of Beacon, NY. On a school trip the island, students Greg and Jill are assigned a treasure hunt as part of a class project on mysterious Bannerman Island. Along the way, Jill and Greg encounter a most unusual woman. Is she real? Is she magical? Will anyone believe them? The ruins of castles provide a looming, almost eerie backdrop for this piece of children’s historical fiction.
