Jeremiah, my best friend, says I’m as rowdy as popcorn on a hot stove. I knew it was a fool thing to do. Ride a mule in a horse race, but they double dog dared me. Who can back down from something like that? You’d do the same.
While I gallop down Main Street in the July 4th race, a couple of low life’s rob the bank and side swipe my Pa, taking him hostage. Jeremiah and I set out to track the outlaws and pay Pa’s ransom, and that’s where the plan goes crazy. I'm dragged out of my hiding place and everything goes downhill from there, but not before I swore myself in as the town Marshal. The job was open and somebody had to step up.
An outlaw takes my horse, Sweet Fury, and forces us to take part in a robberu. A train robbery to be exact, which doesn’t go so great. Trust me, this is a wild west tale that may be too exciting for some. Hang on to your hat and settle in for the ride. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya. Signed, Silver Belle.
A chapter book for kids ages 8-10 who love the wild west, very smart horses, and Texas adventures.
