Daring Rescue at Sonora Pass

Front Cover
Crossway, 2003 - 142 pages
The Joyton family runs a station for the famed Butterfield Stage Line on a mountain pass in southern Arizona. It is a pleasant, solitary life until a stagecoach arrives with a dead man inside. They are told that the mysterious man accidentally shot himself, but fourteen-year-old Drew suspects foul play. A new family arrives and begins to build a store, even though there is no town nearby, and a dangerous stranger appears. Then hostile Apaches pin down two wagon drivers headed for the pass. As Drew and his sister Blaze risk their lives to help the wounded men to safety, their family comes together to conquer some of the dangers of the untamed Western frontier.

Through all these adventures, the Joytons' unreserved commitment to one another and their unflagging trust in God inspire those who meet them and create opportunities to share the love of Christ.

Don't miss this first book in the brand-new Adventures on the American Frontier series.
