Audience: 3rd Grade - 5th Grade
Timid Emily is suddenly orphaned, and to escape the Catchum Child-Catching Services (who want to deliver her to her wicked Uncle for a fee) she goes on a wild stagecoach ride to the far-away town where her Aunt Hilda lives. It will take all of Emily's emerging courage and the help of her fellow orphan Jackson to escape the wiles of her uncle. This book is written in a lively, engaging style and each chapter ends with a 'cliff-hanger' in bold type that will keep even reluctant readers interested in what happens next.
