About This Book
A fantastic epic of a young woman who uncovers the myth — and takes on the persona — of a legendary outlaw.
Legends of Jackaroo, the masked outlaw hero who rides at night aiding the helpless, make the rounds. But Gwyn, the innkeeper's daughter, does not believe such tales — until she makes a discovery.
"An intense, elegantly written, historic adventure-romance [that] will stimulate the imagination and make readers marvel at Voigt's creative genius." — School Library Journal
