ABOUT THE LIFE CHEST: AFRICA
In the second book of the Life Chest series, Josh and Bernie travel the length of the continent of Africa to find a priceless treasure. As they search for seven life chests that hold clues to the location of a legendary diamond mine, the cousins and their new companions encounter excitement and danger, including a gang of ruthless poachers who would kill to get their hands on the sacred diamonds.

They discover the tale of the sacred diamonds from a story in Gramps’ journal about a Zulu shaman and his people who were forced to work in the diamond mines. When they also find a hand drawn map and a dinner plate with painted clues, they decide to travel to Africa, attempt to recover the diamonds, and use them to help the African people and animals.
Get ready to travel with Josh and Bernie on their fascinating journey, from a safari camp in South Africa to the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro, as they experience the magic, mystery and wonder of Africa’s life chest story.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Life chests are unique, beautiful pieces of heirloom-quality furniture. They are meant to hold and protect their owners’ precious keepsakes, and be handed down to future generations—treasured for both the memories they contain and the inspiration they foster.
The Life Chest Adventure Series consists of five novels featuring the adventures of two cousins named Josh and Bernie, as told by Josh in later years to his young granddaughter April. Josh and Bernie’s travels are inspired by the keepsakes they discover in their great-great-grandpa Kim’s life chest. Each keepsake has an intriguing mystery attached to it, prompting dangerous treasure hunts in faraway lands.
In the world of the novels, life chests are infused with magic. When a life chest has been filled with the treasured items and stories of a life well-lived, it is endowed with an ancient power and a potential for magic that Josh and Bernie discover over the course of the books.
Josh and Bernie travel to China, Africa, Europe, the Bahamas, India and Egypt. As they experience the wonders of the modern world, they discover the ancient world as well, through stories of historical characters such as 17th-century pirates and ancient Egyptian queens. The cousins—and the reader—also learn important lessons about family, integrity and legacy through the magic of the life chest.
