Copyright:  April 14, 2011 ISBN-13:  9780399252822

An innocent frontier-era teen gets a taste of the real world when she leaves behind her sheltered life on the rim of a volcano. Gold, scandal, murder and romance are served before Katie becomes a woman.

James Nelson's site

The year is 1875. Katie MacDonald lives with her father on the rim of a volcano so remote she has only met three people in her life. She longs to take the week-long supply trip to Badwater (pop., 250) so she can see, maybe even meet, other people. Eventually, she makes the trip, and the story kicks off, both for good and for bad.

Before it ends, four people are dead. None accidentally.
