Lacrosse Clash

Latest in the Jake Maddox sports series

Eighth-grader Jared Shotpouch loved lacrosse–until his grandmother moved them off the reservation. Now he’s at a new school and on a new team where nothing feels right. The other kids tease Jared about everything from his last name to his long, braided hair–and the worst bullies are his own teammates. Can Jared prove his skills on the field and teach his teammates about the origins of lacrosse at the same time?

About the series

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

Chasing Bigfoot

The further adventures of Chooch Tenkiller

Chooch Tenkiller, last seen in The Reluctant Storyteller, isn’t thrilled to be spending some of his summer with his storytelling uncles and cousin Janees at a convention in North Carolina. While there, the uncles want to look for Bigfoot and visit Judaculla Rock, a place of significance to the Cherokee people. Little does Chooch know that he has his own connection to the rock and to Bigfoot—a connection that could put him in mortal danger.
