The 12th title in the Hardy Boys Adventures series has a very intriguing title: The Madman of Black Bear Mountain.

Cool! Thanks for posting it. It reminds me some of the cover for The Roaring River Mystery (mainly because of the rafting theme.) :) 8)

Yeah the cover reminds me of The Roaring River Mystery and the title reminds me of The Secret of Skull Mountain.

I'll be quite happy if the story is anywhere near as good as those two books. :) 8)

Thanks for the update, kosmicdust. Interesting that the site specifies that the cover is not final.

Quote
As part of a research unit, Bayport High’s Green Environment Conservation Club (GECO) is taking a field trip—camping on nearby Black Bear Mountain, where the students will help field biologist Dr. Max Kroopnik investigate local flora. Frank’s there to geek out about nature while Joe’s along for the thrills. Not only does Black Bear Mountain live up to its name—the fierce furry animals are everywhere—but rumor has it that a madman lurks in the forest, and the crazy dude has a penchant for feasting on human flesh. The Hardys scoff at the urban legend, but the rest of their class isn’t so convinced.

When the campers wake up, however, not only do they find a bear roaming the campsite, but their teacher is missing…and blood is streaked across the front of his tent. The GECOs are stranded alone in the wilderness with no technology, no way to call for help, and, quite possibly, a madman on the loose.

Luckily, Frank and Joe have a good amount of survival skills under their belt. But when they venture in search of their teacher, they find themselves hunted by a mysterious axe-wielding man in face paint and bearskins, falling into dangerous rapids, and perched on the edge of a precarious waterfall. Will the Hardys be able to find their teacher and make it back to the campsite alive?

I wish the cover had the bear standing on the mountain and roaring or something. It's pretty cool as it is, but it seems like it could have a touch more to it. In any case, the storyline sounds pretty exciting. :) 8)
