Milly Howard’s Brave the Wild Trail is historical fiction set after the Civil War when Florida was one long stretch of wilderness. Twelve-year-old Josh Bramlett and his family dream of buying ranch land. But before they do, they must sell their first herd cattle, and it is a very long and dangerous journey to market. Armed with eighteen-foot bullwhips that marked them as Florida Crackers, the Bramlett cattle drive follows a trail filled with wild animals, deadly insects, and dangerous outlaws. This Christian fiction delivers a great lesson in courage.
