Suffering from economical and personal tragegy, the Rivers abandon their lifetime home to travel west across Texas. Fourteen-year-old Jake must deal with a new home and school in a country that seems harsh, barren, and hostile. He suffers the worst humiliation of his life on the first day of school. Jake follows new friend Nocona Wells to a different school, where he meets bold and beautiful Loretta, daughter of a Baptist minister. Jake starts to love his new home and school until a teacher-coach targets him for further humiliation. When the Baptist minister and his family disappear without explanation, Jake is blamed. He finds little solace at home as he causes his father to suffer a critical injury.


About The Author

As a boy, Jim's two ambitions were to be a baseball player and a cowboy--common for a Texas boy, but Jim clung to them longer than most. A high school aptitude test revealed inclination toward a career that Jim resolutely vowed to avoid--but the aptitude test seemed to win the battle as Jim pursued a career that conflicted with his dreams. He left it all at 53 to lead a covered wagon journey across Texas and to travel the team roping circuit. He has authored eight books. The latest are three novels in his Follow the Rivers Trilogy.


Reviews

Suzanne Morris, novelist...The Rivers Family has captured my heart and I care deeply about what happens to them. Ainsworth's writing is always engaging, never slows down or falters. His descriptive detail is an absolute feast---Terry Mathews, Newspaper Editor...Rivers Ebb belongs on every best seller list in the country. A refreshing change from formula fiction. Ainsworth's skills remain razor sharp.
