Everywhere twelve-year-old Andrea Carter goes, trouble follows. In this sequel to Andrea Carter and Long Ride Home, Andi nearly tramples her new teacher in a reckless, impromptu horse race down the main street of Fresno--not a good way to begin the fall 1880 school term. That's only the beginning. Andi is soon plunged deep into the middle of another life-threatening adventure. An escaped convict rushes into the schoolroom, and Andi must make the hardest decision of her life. She must choose whether or not to walk deliberately into danger to save the teacher's irritating daughter. Andi shows her true character--and discovers the true meaning of the Golden Rule.
