Some brief overview of this book

Mid-Nineteenth Century Oregon Too young to avert danger, Mattie McAlister – an eleven-year-old runaway slave – walked alone to Oregon, hiding in daylight and walking in darkness. One rainy night, she bumped into Black Saul and feared he would abuse her like her half-brothers had. A moment later, her peril intensified as horse riders brandishing leather whips approached and Mid-Nineteenth Century Oregon Too young to avert danger, Mattie McAlister – an eleven-year-old runaway slave – walked alone to Oregon, hiding in daylight and walking in darkness.

One rainy night, she bumped into Black Saul and feared he would abuse her like her half-brothers had. A moment later, her peril intensified as horse riders brandishing leather whips approached and stopped ten feet away. Overwhelmed with dread of a lashing, they dropped to the ground to hide.

But this was only the first of her many encounters with danger. A week later, she was left with scars across her back when she lived through a bear attack with help from Robert Newell. And years later, on her trip to Celilo Falls with Joe Meek and Margaret J.

Bailey, she walked away from a Cayuse kidnaper with a trophy of a feathered necklace and a digit from her attacker's finger. Amid the historical events – the Cayuse Wars, Rogue River War, and Mexican War; the exodus of Oregonians to gold mines; the slaughter of missionaries in the Whitman Mission Massacre; and the making of Beaver Coins – Mattie fell in love with Albert Bayless. Unbeknownst to the guests at the engagement party, Mattie went to check on a sleeping baby and walked to her demise.

While everyone danced the Virginia Reel –POOF – Mattie disappeared. For decades, no one could solve the mystery of what happened to her though the solution was tucked in the back of a drawer. Then one day, Albert Bayless opened the drawer and the knowledge of Mattie's fate tumbled onto the pages of this book, Unbeknownst.
