This is one of those times I desperately wish I had a mossycoat I could put on to travel across country in an instant. In Susan Lowell’s Wild-West-style Cindy Ellen (HarperCollins, 2001), Cindy – who underneath her ragged clothes is pretty as a peach – is forced to do all the dirty work on the ranch by her meaner-than-rattlesnakes stepmother and stepsisters. It also give you a legitimate reason to be afraid of the woods at night, or serves as a morality tale for teens who get the urge to experiment.
