Cover Text: It's your turn to have an adventure...

You've lived in the sleepy seaside village of Baileytown your whole life. Under the watchful eye of your grandad Dagris Screbin, you've learned tricks from the local fisherman and heard tales of wonder from the passing merchants. Yet here you've stay, happily watching the tide come and go.

Now is the time to leave your home and see some of these wonders for yourself. Your grandad's old friend Alf Blomwell has sent word from the far-off swamp town of Hatcheria. Something is amiss. Something that will threaten all Brighthelm. An ancient evil has awoken.

Or has it? Dagris says Alf has been slowly going senile for years, and he was pretty odd to start with. However, he isn't taking any chances. He's sending you, his best adventurer across lands unknown to find out what has panicked old Alf.

The Curse of Saltash Mine is an adventure gamebook in which YOU are the hero. Armed with a pencil, eraser and a die, YOU will decide which paths to take and which dangers to risk.
