The River Way Home: The Adventures of the Cowboy, the Indian, & the Amazon Queen by Mary E. Dawson
ALLIGATORS, OUTLAWS, AND TOURISTS!
Lost and Found on Florida’s Last Frontier!
It’s 1914. A young Cracker who yearns to become a Florida cow hunter, a Seminole who sees his way of life disappearing, and an educated African-American girl from Baltimore lose their boat on Lake Okeechobee and are stranded in the wild and mysterious Florida Jungle. When outlaws block the only road back, they have to find a new way home. How will they survive? And who will they be when they get there?
With a section of old photos and short historical essays at the end, The River Way Home is historical fiction full of action, humor, and conflicts that remain contemporary today. It’s a classic tale of friendship and coming-of-age that will take you back in time to your childhood favorites.
