The third book in Maiya Williams's time-travel trilogy transports readers to Gold Rush California!
The latest in the critically acclaimed series, told from the perspective of Xavier as the kids travel to the Gold Rush
When Xavier, Xanthe, Nina, and Rowan are sent after a time-travel runaway to the California Gold Rush, they're faced with some of their toughest challenges yet: testy gunslingers, greedy prospectors, and worse, a society that doesn't treat all of its members equally. But if they work together as a team, they can find their missing time traveler, and uncover a dangerous secret at the Owatannauk Hotel in the process.
Xavier has always felt that he's destined for great things. When he has the chance to make a name for him-self as an outlaw—even if it's decades in the past—he can't resist showing off. But the four time travelers need each other to complete their task—or the past may become corrupted forever. Full of Wild West adventure, the latest entry in Maiya Williams's series will engage readers from the first stagecoach ride to the last gunfight.
In this third installment of Williams series, 14-year-old smooth-talking Xavier leads four time travelers on a Wild West adventure to tackle their first mission as time detectives during the 1849 Gold Rush.
