Trouble Out West : Six Weeks Surviving Rattlesnakes, Cowboy Pranks, the Ghost of General Custer and the Girls on the Corner.
It's an adventurous trip for brothers Brian and Adam as they travel to a place they've never been before-the wide open spaces of the Dakotas. While they vacation "Out West" younger brother Adam narrates one funny predicament after another, from flying fish hooks on the mighty Missouri River to Indian arrowhead wheeling and dealing. True to his nature, Adam acts on impulse and is shaken by a haunted shed out back of Mom's house. Adding to his troubles are a cranky old landlady, her frisky cat, and scorching Great Plains weather. Adam has the wisdom of his older brother, Brian, but together sometimes their trouble just seems to double. Make that quadruple when the boys make new friends with two spunky guys next door. If four boys and a frisky pup aren't enough to stay out of the way of Mom's busy art studio, try adding honest Hannah and Glitzy Georgia-the girls from down on the corner-into the sun-baked mix. Yet, through their adventures, somehow the brothers learn a lesson or two along the way.
