Dad,Please don't leave me here take me with you please!
There's no way I can make it to Dad looking like this.
If I look like a boy I can make it to Colorado on my own.
I've got my money Dad left me now to make it across the country.
Valentine or Vallie as she likes to be called is left in Pennsylvania with her Aunt, Uncle, and cousin while her father goes to Colorado to look for gold.
I think he's lost we should help him.
What am I going to do the train left me?
I finally made it working in this saloon is a great place to find Dad.
After a year of waiting and missing her father Vallie decides she has had enough of her uncaring uncle and mean cousin. After her cousin cuts off her pigtail she realizes she can travel to Colorado looking like a boy.
Vallie find 5 gold pieces in her doll and uses them to get a train ticket to Colorado to find her father.
Dad I found you!
Vallie, I'm so glad your here. What are you wearing?
Vallie gets off the train in search for food and gets left behind with no money and no way of finding her way. She is helped by traveling boys that help her get to the next town.
Once Vallie finally reaches Colorado she doesn't know how to find her father. She starts to work at the saloon so she can keep a watch out for him.
Vallie finds her father who had found lots of silver and is now rich and had been missing her.
