NCLA Review: Cassie Lockwood was a sight to behold astride her beautiful horse, Wind Dancer. She kept crowds spellbound with her trick riding and amazing sharp shooting as part of a traveling Wild West Show in 1906 North Dakota. But it all ended when Jason Talbot, her late father’s partner, ran the show deeply in debt and suddenly left with all the money. She was left with a few dollars, her father’s show wagon, her horse and a few other animals. All her life her father had told her of his dream valley in the Black Hills where they would return one day and build a ranch. She decided to try to find this valley with the help of Chief, an old Indian, who was her father’s friend years ago. There are accurate and meaningful descriptions of how people lived in this era as they made their way through many hardships on their journey. This is Book 1 in the author’s Wild West Wind series. It does leave the reader with many unanswered questions. Rating: 4 —DM ( )

Exciting New Series by Beloved Author Lauraine Snelling

Addy Lockwood's mother died when she was little, so Addy traveled with her father's Wild West Show and became an amazingly skillful trick rider, likened by some to the famous Annie Oakley. When her father died, she continued to work with the show, having nowhere else to go.

Now Addy has discovered that "Uncle" Jason, the show's manager, has driven the show into debt, and he's absconded with what little money was left. Devastated, Addy decides to try to find the hidden valley where here father had dreamed of putting down roots. She has only one clue. She needs to find three huge stones that look like fingers raised in a giant hand. With Chief, a Sioux Indian who's been with the show for twenty years, and Micah, the head wrangler, she leaves both the show and a bundle of heartache behind and begins a wild and daring adventure.
