It is a good combination of human interest, adventure, and accurate old west lore.” - Hamlet, an Amazon customer

Some boys are fortunate enough to experience a fun adventure. But not the young orphan Dan who must go through a life-threatening adventure in author David Leonard’s book, Westward Bound, Alone.
Dan, an orphan boy who stammers and prefers to be by himself, is tragically separated from his sister and foster parents during the caravan passing through an unknown territory in the Great Plains. On his own, the young boy must make his way to Oregon, and that means he must survive the dangerous environment filled with crooks, miners, and mysterious men in strange clothes.
“This is good adventure story for young persons. It is clearly aimed at the youth market; with an interesting narrative about survival and growing up in a harsh and unforgiving environment. It is a good combination of human interest, adventure, and accurate old west lore,” says Hamlet, an Amazon customer who gave the book the highest rating.
Middle-schoolers will cheer for young Dan as he searches for his true home and true love. David Leonard’s Westward Bound, Alone is available in selected online booksellers.
