Prairie Crossing is about enduring values, a theme that emerges authentically through a fascinating, unusual, yet sensitive story about Maggie, a child prodigy who lives in a remote, rural town on the High Plains of Texas in the 1880s. It is an accurate and often humorous retelling of the strenuous challenges of life in this era-the violence, the piety, and the motley variety of personalities inhabiting these small frontier settlements in the west.
Maggie is an orphan whose casual prescience encourages grownups to think she can see the future. She mystifies her unschooled older brother, whose struggle to keep them together leads to a perilous mission, driving a cattle herd across the enormity and magnificent loneliness of the Llano Estacado.
As word spreads across the state about Maggie's remarkable abilities, she and her brother become the target of vicious kidnappers. The desperate search to find them involves colorful Texas heroes like William F. Cody and Charles Goodnight.
Prairie Crossing is an original work, written by a Texan whose forebears traveled from Georgia to the High Plains of Texas in a covered wagon.
