Samantha is a Chinese girl in the 1800s. After her father is killed in an arson, the landlord tries to attack her. Samantha kills him, but now she's in trouble. No one will believe her side of the story.
So, together with a slave girl named Annamae, Samantha runs off to the West together. But the West is a dangerous place for two girls in the 1800s, so they disguise themselves as two boys, Sam and Andy. They join a group of three cowboys, and have quite an adventure.
I love the book, loved all the characters. They were all hilarious, lovable, and the book kept me on the edge of my seat. I was VERY sorry when I finished this book, because it was GREAT. Check it out!
