Young Hallie fears nothing.  Not climbing trees.  Not even taming a wild colt.  Well, she might be afraid of storms.  And now her family is moving west.  She's even volunteered to drive the oxen team.  But they are moving away from her grandmother (would also might be afraid of storms).  It is a long, hard trip but Hallie and her family keep going.  But when they are in Wyoming, Hallie has gone hunting for buffalo chips for the fire when she hears the low rumble.  Knowing that a storm is coming, she must face her fears.
