Rescue in Poverty Gulch
by Nancy Oswald
Eleven-year-old Ruby is in a pickle. After years of traveling the mountains and hills of Colorado with her Pa and their donkey, Maude, Pa decides to settle down in the booming gold mining town of Cripple Creek. Worse that that, Pa decides it’s time for Ruby to learn something about being a lady. Vinegar and baking soda don’t mix. Ruby faces the prospects of having to wear a corset, learning the art of elocution, and the possibility of having the school headmistress for a mother. Events lead Ruby into the midst of the 1896 Cripple Creek fire and culminate with the rescue of Maude from the clutches of a local scoundrel. Ruby learns a few lessons along the way, or does she?
