Teenage Jews, members of the Staab and Ilfeld families, left Germany in the mid 1800s and settled in the Wild West, an adventure which led to:
• Julia Staab’s scary encounter with Billy the Kid.
• Hebrew written in stone above a cathedral entrance.
• Ludwig Ilfeld landed a role in the movie, The Rattlesnake.
• Rumors of a ghost at the Palace Avenue mansion.
Hopi snake dancers, a horse named Maude, a President, a freed slave and a Supreme Court justice appear in this true story of family, friendship and adventure in New Mexico. Plus 14 vivid illustrations!
