The Adventures of Granny Clearwater

"One day the Clearwater family decided to head out to where the sun sets--that place called the West." 

The Clearwater family is heading west in their covered wagon. But when Granny and Little Critter are accidentally thrown from the back, they are suddenly on their own. Full of determination and armed with a taste for adventure, the plucky pair set out to find the rest of the Clearwater clan. On the way, they catch an infamous thief, deliver mail on a pony express, and pan for gold-to name just a few of Granny and Little Critter's daring feats.

Set in the Wild West circa 1800s, here's a larger than life story about a fearsome duo.
