Nancy and her two best friends, George and Bess, travel to Arizona for a vacation on Shadow Ranch which is owned by one of her friend's relations. While there they discover that there is a mystery to be solved - there are sightings of a ghost horse and the lure of a hidden treasure.

When trapped by the culprits, Nancy does what she does best - evade certain harm and solve the case.

This is finally the book where we see George and Bess make their first appearance as most Nancy Drew fans know that they are her most loyal sidekicks.

Nancy, although a teenager in a very different time, continues to give all young girls thoughts of solving their own mysteries.
