There's never a dull moment at Eagle Lodge. Whether it's riding Lily on a steep mountain trail, encountering a bear, or saving her brother from one of his close calls, Wakara is always in the middle of excitement.In book three, an antique journal reveals a stunning surprise: The first Wakara was indeed her ancestor, but she wasn't even close to who Wakara thought she was.

To make matters worse, Dad is suddenly treating her as if she were ten instead of almost sixteen, and she can't figure out why. As always, Wakara is stressed about taking care of Ryan, her accident-prone seven-year-old brother. When Colin leads the gang on a white water rafting trip, he makes a crucial error in judgment, and Ryan is swept out of the boat. A desperate search-and-rescue operation ensues, with Wakara right in the middle. Can she ever forgive Colin for putting Ryan's life at risk?
