Take a Louis L'Amour Western and leaven it with a dash of Lemony Snicket, and you have Audrey Couloumbis's adventure tale. Lee Adams tells the story with a dry Western drawl. She portrays smart, spunky 11-year-old Sallie, who rolls with life's punches and lands on her feet. The orphaned tomboy and her 15-year-old ladylike sister, Maude, find their lives turn into one of the Western "dimers" Sallie is so fond of when Aunt Ruth is killed by a stray bullet as she exits the mercantile. When they "borrow" two horses from their evil guardians, they begin their lives of misadventure and misunderstanding, which are documented in newspaper articles that read like Sallie's beloved pulp novels.
