“An experience, a secret, and a love tune to the flora and fauna. . . . Run out and skim it. correct now.”—Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman
In town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is understood for 2 issues: her uncanny goal with a rifle and her behavior of talking her brain plainly.
But whilst Georgie blurts out whatever she is not going to, her older sister Agatha flees, working off with a pack of "pigeoners" trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And whilst the sheriff returns to city with an unidentifiable body—wearing Agatha's blue-green ball gown—everyone assumes the worst. Except Georgie. Refusing to think the evidence which are laid down (and coffined) ahead of her, Georgie units out on a trip to discover her sister. she's going to tune each final clue and shred of facts to convey Agatha domestic. but inspite of resolute decision and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie isn't really ready for what she faces at the western frontier.
