Ox Cart Angel - historical fiction for mid-grade readers (and adults)!

ETA - Ox Cart Angel won the Midwest Book Award for Best Young Adult Novel of 2011!

Some pictures of the award ceremony can be found here.

I'd like to tell you about my newest novel, Ox Cart Angel, historical fiction for middle-grade readers and older, under my pseudonym J. A. Arnold. (I know it's quite a stretch from real name!)

While the Civil War rages far away, Claire and her father set out on a journey from the Dakota Territory, hoping to catch up to a large caravan of Métis fur traders that left the day before. Their destination? The bustling city of St. Paul, where Papa wishes to open a photography studio. But with only Bone Bag, their one-horned ox, to pull their squeaky cart, they soon realize they may have to make their treacherous journey alone. Braving bad weather, packs of wolves, dangerous river crossings, starvation and exhaustion, can Claire and her father survive the deeply rutted ox cart trails?

You can read the opening five chapters for free at my blog.

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Smashwords

Thanks for taking a look.

Do you hear that squeaking noise in the distance? It's the sound of ox carts rolling across the plains.
