In this kids historical fiction, the Joyton family is told the mysterious dead man in the famed Butterfield Stage Line stagecoach accidentally shot himself. But fourteen-year-old Drew Joyton suspects foul play.
A new family arrives and begins to build a store. Even though there is no town. Meanwhile, a dangerous stranger appears. Then hostile Apaches pin down two wagon drivers headed for the pass. Drew and his sister Blaze risk their lives to help.
Excerpt from Daring Rescue at Sonora Pass, kids historical fiction:
Drew heard the thunder of twenty-four hooves. The squeak of dry axles. And watched the fog of yellow-brown dirt race ahead of the stagecoach.
Whap Martin hollered, yanked the lead lines, and stomped on the hand brake. The hugs Concord stagecoach slid to a stop between Drew and his mother. J. J. Jones shoved his shotgun under the coach seat and climbed down. “Afternoon, Mrs. Joyton,” Whap hollered as if the hooves still pounded.
“Welcome to Sonora Pass, all of you. How many for dinner, Mr. Martin?” she called out as Drew unhitched the team.
“Only us four.” Martin hopped down.
Ceva Joyton glanced back at the coach. “Only four? You mean, there’s no one in the coach?”
“No one except a dead man,” J. J. Jones told her. “I don’t reckon he’ll be eatin.”
