Synopsis: Scraper Jones Treasure Hunter is a story of planes, airboats, hurricanes, explosives, and treasure hunting. The book contains no graphic violence, no vulgarity, and no adult situations. The book is a suitable read for mature teens and young adults. The main character, Scraper Jones, is a common household name. His band of fellow treasure hunters is made up of six diversified individuals living on the edge. Professor, a researching genius, has earned millions researching treasure leads for the most successful treasure hunters in the world, now he wants to get out of his lab and join the action. Chickenman Pete, a desert rat, never sleeps under a roof, steals for his keep, and has connections throughout the Desert Southwest that can supply the unique requirements of professional treasure hunters. Hardman, a former hard rock miner, is desert-wise, a worthy foe, and knows the Desert Southwest as well as any man. Patch, a one-eyed ladies-man millionaire society dropout, is interested only in the dangers of the hunt. Marlow, a demolition expert, constantly overestimates the correct amount of high explosives with devastating results. Willie, a mentally handicapped black man, disabled while suffering a beating by a racist cop, struggles to hold his own. These men follow a treasure lead from the Desert Southwest to the eye of hurricane Andrew in the southern bayous of Louisiana. Along the way they encounter twists and turns, unscrupulous underworld drug lords, desert rigors, and hurricane nightmares that would send normal men fleeing for their lives. The author, William S. Butler was born and grew up on a small family farm near Danville Illinois and in 1962 moved to San Diego California. He has roamed the Desert Southwest as a rock hound, prospector, and treasure hunter; earned his living as a technical writer, both writing and instructing others on how to write; and has lived and worked an adventurous life in forty-five different states and twenty-seven foreign countries in the power industry. Mr. Butler is a licensed private pilot, storm chaser, and racecar driver. He served aboard a submarine during the Cuban missile crisis, and was a decorated counter insurgent during the Vietnam War. Mr. Butler has called Las Vegas, Nevada home for the past twenty-five years
