Summary
Gabe Young is an orphan. He barely survives in the unforgiving West by working for meals at mining camps and frontier towns. Then in 1860 he gets lost along the Humboldt River in northern Nevada Territory. He meets a girl, who takes him to her parents at a Pony Express station. With them Gabe finds a whole lot more than shelter and a meal. He discovers a father' s provision, a mother' s love, and a young girl' s interest. But most of all, he discovers God' s grace.

Gabe can hardly believe the family' s tender care for him, and when he gets a chance to help them, he rides several legs of the dangerous Pony Express trail with the news of Abraham Lincoln' s election and the impending Civil War. Gabe learns the power of prayer and love in this second installment of the Adventures on the American Frontier series.
