In a matter of days, Jack Parker loses his parents to smallpox, his grandfather to murder, and his sister to kidnappers. With the help of a cunning bounty hunter and an ex-slave grave digger, he sets out on an epic journey across turn-of-the-20th-century East Texas to rescue his sister. A coming-of-age Western “laced with bravado, good humor, action, and heart.” (LJ 9/1/13)

Congratulations to Joe for the much deserved honor!
