Read from the Book

Flame quivered beneath me, ready to fly off the moment I asked.

"The mail''s been stopped one minute and twenty seconds," Uncle Billy said. "That''s more than long enough."

He slapped Flame on the rump and the horse leaped forward as if shot from a cannon. The sudden movement caught me off guard and for one horrible second I thought my career as a Pony Express rider was over before it started.

Joselyn is determined to escape from the Carson City Home for Unfortunate Girls. Disguised as a boy, she finds a job carrying the mail for the Pony Express. When the meanest man on the route learns that Jo is not who she appears to be, he uses her secret to extract a promise that, kept or broken, could mean death. Nikki Tate has been crazy about horses since before she spoke her first word, "horsie." Jo''s Triumph is Nikki''s tenth novel. Nikki lives with her daughter and many finned, furred and feathered creatures near Victoria, British Columbia.
