Sallie March, our narrator, is an 11 year old tomboy living in what we know think of as "the Old West days". Her parents are both dead, victims of yellow fever, so she and her teen sister, Maude, have since been living with their matronly aunt, Ruthie. While running errands with Ruthie one day, the girls become innocent, victimized bystanders in a shootout. Aunt Ruthie is killed instantly by a stray bullet. {I loved that on that fateful day, Aunt Ruthie, having quite the day already, speaks the unfortunate line: "Some days it isn't even a good idea to get out of bed."}

Now really orphaned, the girls spend some time living under the roof of Reverend Peasley and his wife. Stifled by too many rules and Mrs. Peasley's tendency to overwork Maude and her sister for selfish gain, Maude reaches the end of her rope. The last straw is when Mrs. Peasley tries to push Maude into a marriage with a much older man.

The March girls decide to make a break for it. Their journey requires them to pose as boys as to not arouse suspicion (you know, two young ladies traveling alone, can't be up to any good...) but hope their travels will soon take them to a new town where they can start over. It's no easy road though. Because Maude sorta borrows a couple of the Peasley's horses to aid her getaway, she gets labeled a wanted horse thief. Through a few other misunderstandings, she also wracks up the charges of bank robber and murderer and boom! -- the March girls are suddenly starring in one of Sallie's beloved dime novels! Every time they get their hands on a newspaper, Maude's legend seems to grow! But it's not just the stains on their reputations they're fighting. Additionally, these sisters face up against blizzards, mountain lions, rattlesnakes, food shortages, finding themselves having to evade police, even being taken hostage by REAL criminals!

What starts as a sort of comedy of errors grows into a heartwarming story of sisterhood and taking care of family, no matter what. This story is full of honest chuckles, especially from the wit of young Sallie March, who has sass for days! For readers who are fans of novels which include maps, this book features a pretty adorable one! Definitely recommend this fast, fun adventure for any and all lovers of Western comedy!

If you end up enjoying this book as much as I did, the adventures continue in Maude March On The Run!

Note To Parents: Though this novel is geared toward middle-grade readers, there is some mild violence to be aware of: some scenes mention a toe being shot off and one character being stabbed through the hand. The criminals in this book are of a bumbling, comical sort though, so even the more violent scenes are lightened with humor. Still, heads up on that in case you want to monitor what your child is reading and prefer to do a pre-read yourself.

I got this for my 9 year old daughter as she is crazy about western things and horses. She and my mother in law read together over the summer and loved it so much that they begged to get the sequel. They both said it was hilarious. Makes me want to go pick it up too.

You have got to read this book.
  • Kajikus
It was so awesome, I thought it would blow my mind.
In other words, it was awesome!
Totally epic. Awesome!
  • Fecage
This is a great book as is the first one in the series!
  • Gandree
I love the characters in this series, so the follow-up story, has all of the original characters now in different and difficult situations. Was really happy to find a copy.

Both Books

NOT just for children. I am 58 years old and I absolutely love both of these books. The tale (as told through an 11/12 year old) is sometimes just downright funny. I can imagine my little granddaughter saying things like Sallie does.

I would recommend these two books to ANYONE who likes westerns and who likes a good laugh.

"It ain't a good idea to keep racking up accidental killings."

I took one of my usual westerns back to the library today after only 20 or so pages. After reading about Sallie and Maude, it just didn't cut the mustard anymore. :)

I wish she had written more of these books. This one is apparently the last of the Maude March series.

The ending sort of thuds to a stop with no clear answers to too many questions. Did the writer tell her story? How did the old couple in the wagon fair? Did they ever meet again? Whatever happened to all the women who were looking for husbands?

And the most pressing question of all: Did sparks ever fly between Maude and Marion? He seemed to be taken with Maude, but we are left to wonder how she really felt about him.

There could very well be several more books in this series. Sallie herself could carry a few books by herself. I have no doubt they would be well received.

Really good stories that just stop with a thud at the end of the second book.
This books tells the continuing story of 16 year old Maude March from her 12 year old sister, Sallie's, point of view. This is definitely a second book; you REALLY need to read the first book in the series (The Misadventures of Maude March) to understand what is going on in this one. Maude and Sallie have settled in with their Uncle Arden. Maude and Sallie sent the money from the bank robbery back to the sheriff in Des Moines with a letter explaining how they were innocent. They keep waiting for Maude's name to be cleared while holding their breath every time a lawman walks by. Then, the unthinkable happens and Maude is arrested while Uncle Arden is out of town and it is up to Sallie and Marion to break her out of jail. Then the three of them are on the run again. A fun adventure story with a good bit of humor thrown in. I liked it very much.
