Scuba diving. Hunting for pirate treasure. White water rafting. Those are just some of the adventures Sam Cooper discovers when he moves to Harper’s Inlet. But for author Max Elliot Anderson, the adventure is just part of what readers discover when they read the Sam Cooper Adventure series. “In addition to being exciting stories,” he says, “each book teaches lessons about character, honesty, friendship, along with warnings about making wrong choices, greed, selfishness and other pitfalls.” River Rampage (Port Yonder Press), the third book in the series, takes Sam Cooper and his friends rafting on the Colorado River.
