From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Rose Taylor, 12, wants to be a trick-rider in the Wild West Show, but in 1886 Louisville, KY, she has to settle for assisting her older brother, Zane, with his sharpshooting act and playing the part of a settler fleeing from American Indians. When General Judson, a supporter of the Dawes Allotment Act, is shot during a performance and Zane is charged with attempted murder, Rose sets out to clear his name. She suspects that the real target was Senator North, a staunch advocate for American Indian rights, and that Chief White Bear, a Dakota Indian who performs in the show, knows more than he will tell. While she receives assistance from the 13-year-old son of the Wild West Show's co-owner and clues from Chief White Bear, it is Rose herself who must solve the mystery and bring the would-be assassin to justice. While there are some historical inaccuracies, such as South Dakota called a state three years before it was admitted to the Union, the story strives to be true to the era while incorporating modern sensibilities about prejudice and racial injustice.
