Adam is not looking forward to his family’s plans for the summer. He and his parents will be spending the entire summer at Cabin #10 on Schooner Point. His best friend Billy was supposed to come with them but now those plans have fallen through. What will he do for the long, long summer months? As the weeks pass, however, Adam makes several new friends as several families spend parts of the summer at Schooner Point. But it is his relationship with Theo, an old man who lives at the point that will be the most important to him. Theo loves collecting pieces of driftwood but because of his failing eyesight can’t collect it on his own. Adam and some of his new summertime friends find many unique pieces for Theo’s collection – and with each of their discoveries Theo is able to divine the true origin of the wood with moving tales from around the world. They hear stories from many different regions of the world including China, Australia, and Africa. And those stories and his new friendships make the summer one of the most important ever for Adam.
