Things have changed dramatically for nine-year-old Bill since his father left home. He is suddenly the man of the house and must help his family survive the bitter-cold winter. And to top it all off, he now has to go to school!
But with his new responsibilities come nightmares and worries. Bill has never felt more alone. Even his favorite sister, Julia, doesn't seem to understand him anymore. When Pa finally returns, frail and weak, life gets even more confusing. What is Bill's role in the family now? Can he stop the border ruffians, who have vowed to drive the Codys off their land, from returning?
The exciting third book in the ongoing adventure series about young Buffalo Bill, In the Eye of the Storm sweeps readers back into the exciting and dangerous world of America's frontier past.
With the threat of further violence from pro-slavery border ruffians ever-present, nine-year-old Bill must run the farm, even after his father comes home to recuperate from his knife wound, and go to school.
