Tony Vincent migrates to his uncle's Christian camp in south Texas, hoping to fulfill his probation requirements and increase his chances for being accepted into an elite riding school. But as the bus fumes clear and the reality of his gritty, mosquito-infested surroundings sets in, Tony's dreams fade. Curious law officers and some mysterious activity at Camp Jericho feed his fear that he'll never be able to dispel the grim shadows that hang over his past. Then opportunity knocks - an opportunity that could recompense the past, and save Camp Jericho if Tony is brave enough to go for it. Ages 9-12.
