Summary: Twelve-year-old Jade is unhappy when her parents send her off to Wyoming to her aunt’s house for the summer.  While she gets to know a boy who calls himself Roy Parker—the real name of legendary rebel cowboy Butch Cassidy. His dad’s hardware store has gone out of business because a chain store opened in town, and Roy compares it to the big cattle barons in Butch’s day who put the local ranchers out of business. He wants Jade to be his Sundance Kid and help him pull some stunts to sabotage the big store. Jade wants to be a good friend, but she’s not so sure about Roy’s schemes.
