||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
