Twelve-year-old Joseph Martin hadn't meant to travel so far into the "Lost Josephine Mine," but he has become hopelessly lost. Moments later, he stumbles across a skeleton lying in a chamber filled with riches!
As Joseph opens a nearby treasure chest, the cavern fills with light. Magically the skeleton springs back to life as he and Joseph are transported into another realm. Joseph soon finds himself captive on a pirate ship sailing toward a volcanic island in search of a mythological treasure with the power to grant material wealth to anyone who can obtain it!
