A Newbery Award winner delivers a witty tale of the Wild West filled with comical cliffhangers and featuring a cast of plucky orphans and dastardly villains.
From the Publisher:
Unexpectedly orphaned in the 19th century, Emily is torn between neighbors who would send her to live with her honorable aunt and a child-catcher who would deliver her to a wicked uncle, a situation that causes a friendship to be forged with a fellow orphan who assists Emily as she seeks to discover her uncle's true motives. By the Newbery Award-winning author of Shiloh. Simultaneous.
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.
