He Will Go Fearless

By

Fifteen-year-old Billy needs to go fearless to make it through the adventures that are in store for him—and he does! This young man is on a quest to find his father, who lives across the country in Virginia City. After running away from home, Billy treks through the Wild West in the early days after the Civil War. He encounters scoundrels, Indians and harsh working conditions as an ox driver. Through these trials and tribulations, the reader will grow to really like Billy and many of the characters surrounding him. The author provides dramatic images of the new West that immensely enhance the story. This coming-of-age historical novel is a treat for the young reader, and many a grown-up will appreciate this afternoon read as well. A sequel is certainly in order. Ages 9-12.
