(From the publisher):
Anna Sunday has just received possibly the worst news a twelve-year-old living in 1863 can: Her father, a Union soldier fighting in the Civil War, has been shot and is not expected to live.
But Anna doesn't believe this for a minute, and neither does her nine-year-old brother, Jed. They know all Pa needs is some apple dumplings and Anna's shoofly pie. All Pa needs is them, and they have to get to him--no matter what it takes.
But everyone knows a journey across Rebel lines is not safe--especially for a girl. So determined, Anna crops off her beautiful dark curls and vows to give up her dresses and her name until she finds her father and brings him safely home. Armed only with Samson--a horse that obeys Bible verse commands--an old hand-drawn map, rolled-up trousers, and a lot of faith, Anna Sunday sets off on an unforgettable journey to find her pa. Surprisingly, she discovers some things about herself as well.
