The Misadventures of Maude March

by

The Misadventures of Maude March Cover

 

Staff Pick

Maude March is a "wanted woman," though she never meant to be. As she and her sister Sallie face one hardship after another, their troubles mount and their lives begin to look like those of the roughriders in the dime novels Sallie reads. If I ever had to face the wild frontier, I'd want Maude and Sallie March with me, especially if they could make me laugh the way this book did.

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 escape their self-serving guardians for the wilds of the frontier, they begin an adventure the likes of which Sallie has only read about. This time however, the "wanted woman" isn't a dime-novel villian, it's Sallie's very own sister! What follows is not the lies the papers printed, but the honest-to-goodness truth of how two sisters went from being orphans to being outlaws — and lived to tell the tale!

Review:

"This is excitin' stuff that you quickly start readin' with a frontier twang. It is a good book that should challenge and amuse the upper elementary crowd." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

"Clever, and very funny."--The New York Times

The year is 1862, and twelve-year-old P.K. “Pinky” Pinkerton is on the run for Whittlin Walt and his gang of ruthless desperados. P.K. is determined to hold on to Mas last priceless possession: the deed to a large amount of land and silver mines in the Nevada Mountains. Problem is, thats exactly what Whittlin Walt is after, and hell do just about anything to get his hands on it. Pinky will have to be both clever and cunning to evade the band of outlaws. But time is running out, and no one can run forever. After all, this is the Wild West, and theres hardly a safe place to hide.
