The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan
Patricia Bailey
Albert Whitman & Company
www.patriciabaileyauthor.com

Thirteen-year-old Kit Donovan made a lot of promises to her dying mother, and the most difficult one to keep – the one about being a proper lady – seems downright impossible in a place like Goldfield, Nevada. The corrupt owner the gold mine seems to hold sway over the whole town. When Kit convinces Papa to speak out against the dangers in the mine, trouble finds her family.

Now she must find a way to expose the misdeeds before it’s too late. With help from an unlikely friend, a Shoshone boy, and a newspaperman, she puts her big mouth and all the life skills she’s learned from reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to work. But is she really brave enough to stand up for what's right?


"A rip-roaring tale of love, friendship, and betrayal. Determined Kit will steal your heart. A romping good read!"
 -Karen Cushman, Newbery Medalist for The Midwife's Apprentice

"As dirt-caked and rough as any gold-flecked nugget found in a mine, Kit Donovan glimmers as a hero for the ages."
-Kate Hannigan, author of Golden Kite–winner The Detective' Assistant

Choosing the best trainer, Veterinarian and farrier.

The project mission is to better the horse world through education that keeps both horse and human safe and happy.
