Daniel nodded, feeling once again the prickle of fear. In the distance he could hear the howling of wolves. What if he couldn't do his part when their lives depended on his being able to hunt for food? What if the next time Marigold decided to balk, Daniel couldn't get him up? And worst of all, what if Garth had really meant what he had said about killing Indians? These questions haunt Daniel Colton's mind as he and his family make their journey west. Can he prove himself to be a real frontiersman? And can he fight against his old enemy--fear? After several unexpected adventures, Daniel realizes that pleasing God is his most important duty, and as a result he wins the respect of many on the wagon train. Ages 9-12.
