Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eleven-year-old Sallie March is a whip-smart tomboy and voracious reader of Western adventure novels. When she and her sister, Maude, are orphaned for the second time, they decide to escape their new self-serving guardians for the wilds of the frontier and an adventure the likes of which Sallie has only read about. This time, however, the wanted woman isnt a villain out of a dime novel–its Sallies very own sister!

Narrated by the irrepressible Sallie, what follows is the rollicking story of what really happened out there on the range. Not the lies the papers printed, but the honest-to-goodness truth of how things went from bad to worse and how two very different sisters went from being orphans to being outlaws–and lived to tell the tale! Bursting with memorable characters, fast-paced action, and laugh-out-loud moments, this is Newbery Honor winner Audrey Couloumbiss most unforgettable work yet.

From the Hardcover Library Binding edition.

Ok well this book is very exiting in the begining because you dont know whats going to happen. When you read the back of the book you kind of figure but then its just jumps right out at you when your not expecting it. then is slowley gets kind of boring but you till want to read it. Over all i would give it # stars
