Overview

Zoe and Zachary Jameson are 14-year-old twins who live on the Allegheny Reservation of the Seneca Nation in Western New York State. They are children of two cultures, struggling to find their place in the modern world while honoring the traditions of their Native American ancestors. About to begin their summer vacation from school, they prepare for long, hot days of chores, sports, and family gatherings. Every year, it's the same thing, there's never anything new happening. Then their cousin Heather gives them some exciting news. Their eccentric Aunt Fawn is coming for a visit. A storyteller, Aunt Fawn always brings fun and a bit of mischief into everyone's lives. Join the twins as they travel, listening to Aunt Fawn's tales of local ghosts, monsters, and other legends.
