Inhaltsangabe: When his beloved mare is stolen by the James gang after an attempted bank robbery in the nearby town of Northfield, Will joins the posse looking for the outlaws.
From School Library Journal: Gr 4-7-When the James brothers stop by the Sasses' ranch for some supplies, no one has any idea who they are and what they plan to do. All Will can think about is Jesse's handsome stallion that would be perfect to breed with his mare, Star. Jesse seems to read the boy's mind and sets his horse free in Star's pasture. After the men leave, Will assumes that he will never see them again. However, the outlaws have set their sights on the bank in Northfield. The robbery goes badly and the cashier is killed. Jesse takes Will's mare and leaves his stallion as he flees from the posse. Determined to get his horse back and feeling guilty for befriending the outlaw, Will joins the posse. Eventually, he finds Star but, equally importantly, through this difficult experience he and his father have begun to understand one another better and balance Will's enthusiasm for trying new things and his father's reluctance to make changes on their farm. Will is an engaging hero whose encounter with an outlaw forces him to do some quick growing up. His everyday life on the family's Minnesota farm is believably depicted and his love for Star and dreams of breeding more refined horses are convincingly told. There is action, suspense, and an interesting slice of history in this story that is based on a real bank robbery by the James gang and the fact that one of the author's ancestors had a horse that was stolen by the outlaws.
