Eleven-year-old Sallie March is a whip-smart tomboy and voracious reader of Western adventure novels. When she and her sister, Maude, are orphaned for the second time, they decide to escape their new self-serving guardians for the wilds of the frontier and an adventure the likes of which Sallie has only read about. This time, however, the wanted woman isn't a villain out of a dime novel: it's Sallie's very own sister! Narrated by the irrepressible Sallie, what follows is the rollicking story of what really happened out there on the range. Not the lies the papers printed, but the honest-to-goodness truth of how things went from bad to worse and how two very different sisters went from being orphans to being outlaws and lived to tell the tale!
Bursting with memorable characters, fast-paced action, and laugh-out-loud moments, The Misadventures of Maude March is Newbery Honor winner Audrey Couloumbis' most unforgettable work yet.

A fun book to listen to.

I loved this book!
Yes. I found this book through a search on Novelist Plus for upbeat, historical fiction. Although I am an adult, I read YA novels often and this is one of the best. The narration was wonderful too!
I would also recommend similar books on Audible:
Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson
Fair Weather by Richard Peck
I wish more of Audrey Coulumbis' books were available as audiobooks.
