Annotation:
This humorous Wild West story follows the frantic fortunes of 8-year-old Emily Wiggens after she's orphaned. She is supposed to go to her lovely Aunt Hilda, but evil interlopers Miss Catchum and Uncle Victor are determined to keep Emily, and her vast inheritance, to themselves. On a stagecoach ride west, Emily and another orphan, Jackson, plot escape. Hilarity and witty writing follow. With illustrations.
