Sal sure can sing. But she can also catch a fish with her bare hands, ride a wild bronco, and drive a stagecoach. And she's nobody's fool. When Sal makes her first stagecoach journey alone to deliver the mail for her sick pa, her ma is nervous. But the wild frontier is no match for Sal, and neither is Poetic Pete, the wiliest stagecoach robber in the West.

The illustrations are captivating, the songs perfectly placed (both in the story and on the page), and Sal is endearingly plucky. Plus, it's exciting! I really enjoyed this book.
