The Gentleman Outlaw and Me--Eli
by Mary Downing Hahn

In 1887, 12-year-old Eliza Yates runs away from her cruel aunt and uncle and sets off for Tinville, Colorado, in search of her missing father. After seeing her vulnerablity as a girl in the Wild West, she cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy. Outwardly, she becomes "Elijah Bates." Through some funny twists and turns, she meets Calvin Featherbone, an 18-year-old who calls himself the "Gentleman Outlaw." Calvin is also headed for Tinville, in search of that town's Sheriff Yates, a man he believes shot his father in the back.

Eli and Calvin join forces. Though a big talker, Calvin soon proves himself to be a greenhorn whose only talent, it seems, is getting them into trouble with his fool ideas.

This is a rip-roaring Wild West story at its best--bound to become one of your favorites!
