To Kill a Mockingbird: Parade of Books Letterbox Series Box 6
This box is a part of the Parade of Books Letterbox Series. The clues lead from box to box. You should check the first box in the series, Lord of the Flies, for general trail information.
Information From Wikipedia:
The novel is a coming of age story about a sister and a brother named Jean Louise "Scout" Finch and Jeremy Atticus "Jem" Finch respectively, who are growing up in the fictional small town of Maycomb, Alabama, in the Deep South of America in 1935. The story takes place over a period of three years and is told through the recollections of the younger sister, Jean Louise Finch or "Scout", as she is commonly referred to by friends. During the story the children's father, attorney Atticus Finch, is appointed to defend a black man (Tom Robinson) who has been accused of raping a white girl (Mayella Ewell).
The American Library Association reports that To Kill a Mockingbird was one of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 1990-2000, and cites several cases from that period and earlier of the book being challenged or banned.
Winner of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

From PoB #5 (Harry Potter): Continue heading away from TT and the two stumps. You might be getting a wee bit tired by now, so take a rest next to the marshland on your left where a bench is provided for you. This is an excellent place to sit, rest, read, and listen to the frogs. I suspect this is just the type of place Scout and Jem would love to explore. No doubt they’d make excellent letterboxers! After you’ve had enough rest, continue west down the trail until you come to the “caution ahead” sign. (This sign has been changed to a generic warning, but I wanted to leave my joke in th clue.) After making the requisite jokes about how dangerous heads can be, take 69 paces. You will be at the beginning of the sixth yellow stripe after the dangerous-head sign. Being super-sneaky, go off the trail into the woods to your right. Climb up a small bank and you will see to your immediate right a small tree cluster. In the base of the cluster is hidden this controversial letterbox. By now I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how busy this trail is and how many of your craziest stealth measures you’ll need to employ.
