Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Newly orphaned Emily Higgins, 8, is on the run from her villainous Uncle Victor. He's after the fortune she recently inherited, but he doesn't care a whit about her. Listeners will care as the sheltered yet spunky Emily flees by stagecoach to her Aunt Hilda in Redbud with her new friend, fellow orphan Jackson, who convinces her to masquerade as a boy. Lee Adams delivers this story with a distinctly Western sound, which gives it the feel of a tall tale. The story moves sure-footedly from one dusty stagecoach stop to another as Emily discovers the independent spirit she’s always had inside.
