A tomboy through-and-through, Beeler sneaks out of the house one night to follow her brother, Leo, who has stolen her horse and set out on a journey with a family friend named Nate Graber,Of course, Beeler brings her pet longhorn cow, Travis, along with her.

  • Not my favorite Patricia Beatty, but still a good historical yarn, featuring the colorful Beulah Land Quiney and her brother Leo, who set out from their tiny Texas community to accompany their older brother's friend Nate on his quest to find his missing father in a place no one has ever seemed to have heard of: Sundown. Set in the Wild West of the 1880s with plenty of historical details, such as a fireside encounter with Billy the Kid, and a traveling circus. 5th grade and up.
