During the struggles, Joselyn, a young orphan, meets Sarah Winnemucca, a Paiute girl who becomes her friend and gives her some valuable advice. When Joselyn takes that advice and escapes from the Carson City Home for Unfortunate Children, she has no idea that her boy's disguise and her love for and expertise with horses will lead her straight to the Pony Express. Joselyn becomes Jo and turns to a life that demands all her inner strength and resources. Then the meanest man on the route learns her secret and uses it to extract a promise that kept or broken could mean death.

Disguised as a boy, Joselyn becomes Jo and joins the Pony Express.

From the Back Cover:

Joselyn is determined to escape from the Carson City Home for Unfortunate Girls. Disguised as a boy, she finds a job carrying the mail for the Pony Express. When the meanest man on the route learns that Jo is not who she appears to be, he uses her secret to extract a promise that, kept or broken, could mean death. Nikki Tate has been crazy about horses since before she spoke her first word, "horsie." Jo's Triumph is Nikki's tenth novel. Nikki lives with her daughter and many finned, furred and feathered creatures near Victoria, British Columbia.
