Gannon and Wyatt might make the discovery of a lifetime--if they can outlast danger in the land of the pharaohs!
After winning a prestigious fellowship from the Youth Exploration Society, Gannon and Wyatt set off on a journey to Egypt. There they study with world-renowned archeologist Dr. Mohammed Aziz, joining him on a quest to find the long lost tomb of the Pharaoh Cleopatra, rumored to hold priceless treasures and secret scrolls containing answers to some of ancient Egypt's greatest mysteries. But Gannon and Wyatt aren't the only ones interested in Cleopatra's secrets. Ruthless tomb robbers are hot on their heels, and the brothers must brave venomous snakes, deadly booby traps, and ancient curses as they find themselves on the verge of a magnificent discovery that could rewrite history.
In the tradition of the historic journals kept by explorers such as Lewis and Clark, Dr. David Livingstone, and Captain James Cook comes the adventure series Travels with Gannon & Wyatt. From Africa to the South Pacific, these twin brothers have traveled the world. You never know what they will encounter as they venture into the wild, but one things is certain--wherever Gannon and Wyatt go, adventure is their constant companion.

From Publishers Weekly-
Following trips to Botswana and Great Bear Rainforest, this third installment in the series based on real-life brothers Gannon and Wyatt Wheeler sees the eponymous teenage twins journeying to Egypt to take part in an archaeological dig, in search of the fabled tomb of Cleopatra. Intellectual Gannon and wisecracking Wyatt squabble and attempt to one-up each other as they venture into the desert, where they brave sandstorms and their individual doubts and fears. When they find a long-lost tomb, which may belong to Egypt's legendary last Pharaoh, they must contend with booby traps and unscrupulous people bent on taking the treasure for themselves. Wheeler and Hemstreet pack this slim adventure full of facts and trivia, as well as photos and drawings, lending it an educational slant. With clear nods to Indiana Jones and other adventure stories, the fast-paced plot and engaging characters are sure to appeal to a young audience--particularly those familiar with sibling rivalry--who may be inspired to learn more about the associated Youth Exploration Society. Ages 9-12.
