Description
"Clever, and very funny."-- The New York Times The year is 1862, and twelve-year-old P.K. "Pinky" Pinkerton is on the run from Whittlin' Walt and his gang of ruthless desperados. P.K. is determined to hold on to Ma's last priceless possession: the deed to a large amount of land and silver mines in the Nevada Mountains. Problem is, that's exactly what Whittlin' Walt is after, and he'll do just about anything to get his hands on it. P.K. will have to be both clever and cunning to evade the band of outlaws. But time is running out, and no one can run forever. After all, this is the Wild West, and there's hardly a safe place to hide.
