Josefina Saves the Day

Josefina’s family is in Santa Fe to make an important trade, and Josefina can’t wait to get her first look at American traders. Before their wagon train arrives, Josefina meets a scout named Patrick. Though his American ways seem strange, she can’t help liking him. When Papá trusts Patrick with the family’s trade, Josefina decides to trust him with a trade of her own. Then Patrick leaves town without paying Papá or Josefina! It seems he’s betrayed them—until, late one night, Josefina makes a surprising discovery.
