Review: Determined to find the father he as never met, fifteen-year-old Billy leaves St. Joseph, Missouri, at the close of the Civil War and heads for Virginia City. Not wanting to make the trip alone, Billy signs on as a teamster and battles weather, river crossings, outlaws and other problems in his quest to find his father. Based loosely on diaries of western artist William Henry Jackson, readers will cheer for Billy as he struggles toward Virginia City and steps into adulthood.
