The Buffalo’s Last Stand, Book 2, Retta Barre’s Oregon Trail by Stephen Bly
Retta Barre has never met a hero, except for the ones she reads about in her books. She does know that they’re strong, courageous, and handsome or pretty. Everything she’s not. Of course, the world doesn’t expect much from her anyways. She’s just a plain-looking, 12-year-old who’s more stubborn than brave. She owes what little strength she has to her dull daily chores.
And yet, when her friends go missing, Retta doesn’t think twice. She heads out to help them. However, she doesn’t know the danger that’s about to come her way. Sometimes friendship requires courage and the extraordinary.
Excerpt from adventures on the Oregon Trail, The Buffalo’s Last Stand:
