Set in Upstate New York, this coming-of-age story is about a boy and his faithful metal detector. Eleven-year-old Cooper and his mom run an antique store out of the old barn next to their house. Cooper dreams of a better life, so when he finds an old metal detector during one of his garage sale hunts, he begins searching his backyard immediately. What he unearths there will change his life forever.

"Budding historians will have the opportunity to learn about an important moment in U.S. historyand may even be inspired to pick up a metal detector of their own. A poignant coming-of-age story and history lesson rolled into one." Kirkus Reviews
"This beautifully written book is steeped in history and folklore all told through the eyes of an amazing eleven-year-old boy that only wants to have his mother act like a mother and the land to be free of hurt." Children's Literature
"Details of the battle and the part that the Iroquois tribes played in the Revolutionary War are accurate and interesting look at the history of a community." School Library Journal
"Osterweil effectively captures Cooper's first-person point of view and the fantasy world he often slips into, where he communicates with Squeaky his bicycle, Decto his metal detector, the television, the ghost of his little brother, and even planet Earth itself. In finding musket balls, cannon, tomahawks, buttons, and coins, and learning the stories behind them, Cooper helps to preserve a piece of history. As a result, readers will sense a healthier future for Cooper and his mother...Funny how a trip to the past can open up a new future." The Horn Book Guide
"[T]reasure hunting, ghosts, and American history...Cooper is oddly engaging." Booklist
