Sintesi dell'editore

Saddle up for a life-defining, death-defying adventure.

Joseph Johnson has lost just about everyone he's ever loved. He lost his pa in an accident. He lost his ma and his little sister to sickness. And now he's lost his pony - fast, fierce, beautiful Sarah, taken away by a man who had no right to take her. Joseph can sure enough get her back, though. The odds are stacked against him, but he isn't about to give up. He will face down deadly animals, dangerous men, and the fury of nature itself on his quest to be reunited with the only family he has left. Because Joseph Johnson may have lost just about everything, but he hasn't lost hope. And he hasn't lost the fire in his belly that says he's getting his Sarah back - no matter what.

The critically acclaimed author of The Honest Truth returns with a poignant, hopeful, and action-packed story about hearts that won't be tamed...and spirits that refuse to be broken.

"Narrator Andrew Eiden deftly captures the colorful vernacular of Washington State in the 1890s. His Western twang gives authenticity to 12-year-old Joseph.... This story is full of emotion, adventure, and a strong sense of time and place." (AudioFile)

LOVE

My husband and I very much enjoyed Joseph’s and Sarah’s story! Great adventure, something written for about a young boy, but liked by all!

Grit, perseverance and family...

Absolutely powerful. Unlike many readers, this is my first book by Gemeinhart and most assuredly won't be my last.I'm not normally a historical fiction/adventure reader, but this story was simply wonderful. I chose to listen to the audio on our road trip and highly recommend it. The narration was excellent. I laughed and cried (A LOT!) and felt like I was Joseph's champion traveling right alongside him. Very well written, I felt like I was there in the west during that time.

I can't wait to share this with my students. My boys who love history and adventure will be thrilled with the pace of the story and its twists and turns. I can even see my girls enjoying this. You don't have to be a horse-lover to love it. Its about grit, love and most of all family.

I was not expecting to love this.

This is a western--which means by golly I was not going to care for it. It had a male protagonist which was even more likely for me to not care. But gosh dangit Joseph Johnson done took my heart and ran off with it. The emotion and love that comes from this book was just overwhelming. I couldn't put it down. I ignored my family for days to listen to this book. I would have lost my job if I wasn't a stay at home mom. My kids ate cereal for breakfast lunch and dinner (much to their complaints - spoiler alert, they didn't complain). Yet again, Andrew eiden blew me away with his story. Definitely a new favorite.
