At Quartz Creek Ranch, at least she feels worlds away from home among the Colorado scenery, goofy older ranch owners, and baby animals. Other parts of Quartz Creek are too familiar, including the unsettling local wave of anti-immigrant threats to ranch workers. On a trip to the back country, Rivka is also surprised to learn the history of Jewish pioneers in the area. When she and her defiant cabinmate, Cat, face disaster in the wild, Rivka will need to find strength rooted deep within her to help them both get home safely. The Long Trail Home by Kiersi Burkhart and Amber J. Keyser.
