13-year-old Dawn is the daughter of two famous archaeologists, Stanley and Alana Quinn. Their adventures have taken them from one end of the world to the other—and this time, they will travel to the mysterious rainforests of Guatemala. The Quinn family have been sent to find the Mayan Ruins, structures hidden near the sleeping volcanoes of the country’s northern region.
Aided by local guides and Dawn’s new friend, Juanita, the Quinn family starts their expedition only to be split up in the rainforest’s thick maze. After the girls are saved by a wild girl of the jungle, Dawn learns that her parents are in danger. With the help of her new friends, Dawn must use all her skills to find the Mayan Ruins, escape the jungle, and save her family.
