When she and her sister Maude escape their self-serving guardians for the wilds of the frontier, they begin an adventure the likes of which Sallie has only read about. This time however, the "wanted woman" isn't a dime-novel villian, it's Sallie's very own sister What follows is not the lies the papers printed, but the honest-to-goodness truth of how two sisters went from being orphans to being outlaws and lived to tell the tale
