Missouri mules were the best. Alda grew to love the creatures working side by side with her pa on their farm
along the banks of the Missouri River. He would be hopping mad when he realized his wife and daughter
colluded behind his back to sell a pack string. It wouldn’t matter that they were trying to save the farm.
Alda struck out on her own to drive the team over fifteen hundred miles. By day three, her lead mule Bessie
refused to take one more step. It was a good thing the handsome cowboy Cord stopped by to lend a hand or
Alda might still be sitting in the dust. Now, Alda needed the man to move on so she could continue her journey. Judging by the spark in Cord’s eye … it just might take some convincing.
