The Gentleman Outlaw and Me--Eli: A Story of the Old West

The Gentleman Outlaw and Me--Eli: A Story of the Old West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Desperate to escape cruel relatives who've made her a servant and a scapegoat since her mother died, twelve-year-old Eliza Yates goes on the run. Disguised as a boy named Eli, she comes across a young man named Calvin Featherbone--a charming con-man who calls himself The Gentleman Outlaw.

Eliza sees places no decent girl would ever set eyes on. For a girl who has never tasted freedom, this boy's life is the happiest time ever. Eli knows she'll never forget Calvin or their crazy adventures--including the shocking surprise that awaits them at the end of their life journey. . .and that is the beginning of a whole new life.

About the Author

Always interested in writing, Mary Downing Hahn became a children's author only after experimenting with a wide variety of careers, from junior high school art teacher to college instructor to children's librarian. Today she is the author of more than twenty books that have appeared on countless state awards lists. Her stories run the gamut from historical fiction such as the popular Gordy trilogy, to ghost stories such as Wait Till Helen Comes and Look for Me by Moonlight. Her most recent work, Anna All Year Round, is a gentle and heartwarming story based on her own mother's diaries.
