In the Eye of the Storm : Book 3 in The Adventures of Young Buffalo Bill by E. Cody KimmelThe Story: Things have changed dramatically for nine-year-old Bill since his father left home. He is suddenly the man of the house and must help his family survive the bitter-cold winter. And
to top it all off, he now has to go to school!

But with his new responsibilities come nightmares and worries. Bill has never felt more alone. Even his favorite sister, Julia, doesn't seem to understand him anymore. When Pa finally returns, frail and weak, life gets even more confusing. What is Bill's role in the family now? Can he stop the border ruffians, who have vowed to drive the Codys off their land, from returning?

The exciting third book in the ongoing adventure series about young Buffalo Bill, In the Eye of the Storm sweeps readers back into the exciting and dangerous world of America's frontier past.

Inspiration: Beth grew up hearing about Buffalo Bill from her father who, like our hero, was also named William Frederick Cody. When she began to look into the childhood of Buffalo Bill, she was amazed to find out what an incredibly exciting - and frightening - life the young boy led. Beth travelled the route the Cody's covered wagon took - going through Iowa and Missouri to their cabin site in Kansas, and what she learned about Bill's life truly amazed her.
