Loved this book and no doubt someone will make it into a great movie!  Set in 1870 Texas, Captain Kidd is given a $50 gold piece to deliver a 10 year-old girl back to her family.  The girl had been captured by the Kiowa when she was 6, so that is the only family she knows.  The distance of this trip is quite far, and few would undertake such a dangerous mission.  The characters are superb and full of dimension.  As with any trip, bonds are broken and some are strengthened.  You won't put this one down until you find out what happens.  Highly recommended.
