Matt and Simon, camp at Simon's uncle's farm. On the first night, they saw a light on a hill in the distance; they did not sleep well because they heard the sound of digging. The next morning, they went for a walk up the hill and saw leopard tracks on the ground. An old man suddenly appeared and led them up the hill where they found a spade and holes in the ground. The old man told them that people are digging in the area to find buried treasure that belongs to the ancestors. That night, the boys heard digging again and went up the hill to see what was going on. A man was busy digging holes. He saw the boys and pointed a gun at them. Just then, a leopard appeared to scare off the man. Simon's uncle appeared with a gun and tied up the thief.
