Exciting New Series by Beloved Author Lauraine Snelling

Addy Lockwood's mother died when she was little, so Addy traveled with her father's Wild West Show and became an amazingly skillful trick rider, likened by some to the famous Annie Oakley. When her father died, she continued to work with the show, having nowhere else to go.

Now Addy has discovered that "Uncle" Jason, the show's manager, has driven the show into debt, and he's absconded with what little money was left. Devastated, Addy decides to try to find the hidden valley where here father had dreamed of putting down roots. She has only one clue. She needs to find three huge stones that look like fingers raised in a giant hand. With Chief, a Sioux Indian who's been with the show for twenty years, and Micah, the head wrangler, she leaves both the show and a bundle of heartache behind and begins a wild and daring adventure.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Addy has spent her life perfecting her skills as a trick rider with her father's Wild West show. It's the only real home she's ever known, and it was a life her father loved before he died. When she learns that "Uncle" Jason, her father's trusted manager, has run the show into the ground and has taken what little money was left, Addy decides to find the hidden valley where her father had longed to settle. All she knows is that the valley is marked by three special stones. With two of her closest confidants, she embarks on a new adventure. VERDICT Launching a new historical series, the prolific Snelling ("Home to Blessing" and "Red River of the North" series) incorporates period details and well-rounded memorable characters into a lively tale that will please her many fans and attract new ones, especially those who enjoy Lynn Austin's novels.
