When Kate Thompsonís father is brutally murdered, she disguises herself as a boy and rides after the band of outlaws that murdered him, took his journal, and burned their house. Along the way she picks up some unlikely and somewhat unwelcome help in the form of two brothers whose father was a friend of her own father and a young Apache girl. Kate wants revenge, the gang wants the gold, and everyone has their own motives. It is a dangerous and dusty path the journal will lead Kate on, a path that will lead her to betrayal. (Eliot Rosewater Indiana High School Book Award, Rosie Award, 2018)
