Captain Kidd travels across the southwest delivering theatrical readings of old newspapers. He comes across a wagoneer with an unusual request- he has picked up a young girl who had been stolen and was kept by the Kiowa Indians and must now return her to her family. Johanna has been in captivity for years and remembers little of her "white" life. They must make the trek back through Indian territory and avoid men who would kidnap Johanna and sell her back to the Indians as well as all the other countless dangers of the untamed West. Reminiscent of "Lonesome Dove", you will fall in love with the honorable Captain and feel sorry for Johanna in her difficult transition back to so-called civilization.
What begins in fear and a sense of justice ends in love and family.
This is my favorite book this year and a must for all Texans.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
