Publisher's Summary

"An adventure, a mystery, and a love song to the natural world…Run out and listen to it. Right now." (Newbery Medalist Karen Cushman)

In the town of Placid, Wisconsin, in 1871, Georgie Burkhardt is known for two things: her uncanny aim with a rifle and her habit of speaking her mind plainly. But when Georgie blurts out something she shouldn't, her older sister Agatha flees, running off with a pack of "pigeoners" trailing the passenger pigeon migration. And when the sheriff returns to town with an unidentifiable body - wearing Agatha's blue-green ball gown - everyone assumes the worst…Except Georgie.

Refusing to believe the facts that are laid down (and coffined) before her, Georgie sets out on a journey to find her sister. She will track every last clue and shred of evidence to bring Agatha home. Yet even with resolute determination and her trusty Springfield single-shot, Georgie is not prepared for what she faces on the western frontier.

    "Setting, story, narration: all solid!"

    Just about perfect. The story is great, with a strong setting that reveals the peacefulness and wildness of the west at once. The main character is strong and sassy and smart and irresponsible, but completely like-able. Mystery and adventure are weaved into the story, and I just guarantee that you'll love it! I'm SERIOUS about my audiobooks, and this one is a big hit!
