In RIDE THE RIVER, Louis L'Amour spins the tale of a young woman who has to protect her family fortune from a murderous thief and teaches him what it means to be a Sackett.

Sixteen-year-old Echo Sackett has never been far from her Tennessee home-until she made the long trek to Philadelphia to collect an inheritance. Echo could take care of herself as well as any Sackett man, but James White, a sharp city lawyer, figured that cheating the money from the young girl would be like taking candy from a baby. If he couldn't hoodwink Echo out of the cash, he'd just steal it from her outright. And if she put up a fight? There were plenty of accidents that could happen to a country girl on her first trip to the big city. . . .

Tough and street savvy, Echo always manages to land on her feet despite the odds of being a young girl in the old west. Echo Sackett reminds me of the heroine in the film "True Grit."
This novel inspired me to start at the beginning and read the whole Sackett series.
