The second book in the Texas Trail series will transport readers back to the late 1800s. As the plot unfolds it brings anticipation and fear that the Indians will find Taabe before her family does.
Ned Bright is on his daily mail route when he comes across a wounded woman. Taabe Waipu is determined to escape her captors of more than a decade, the Numinu tribe. With Ned’s help, she begins to remember details from before the kidnapping. Soon she is speaking English and hopeful that she will be reunited with her family — unless the Numinu find her first.
