After her parents were taken by the coronavirus the previous year, Joey was left alone in the world. Developing an interest in primitive technology and wanting to reconnect with her distant Native ancestry, she embarks on a hunting trip to try out her newly acquired survival skills, but she never expected to be thrown from her horse. She certainly never expected to wake up a hundred and fifty years in the past.

Everett MacMahon has just gotten settled in at his new post as a U.S. Marshal when the wild Joey Moon Feather comes tearing into town with a gang of outlaws hot on her heels. Initially mistaking her for a boy, he feels immediately compelled to help the orphan out, paying out the bounties on a few of the outlaws. Upon finding out her true gender, Everett is even more determined to protect the little hoyden, with her strange speech and odd ways, from the outlaws who are now gunning for her, with whatever means necessary. Whether she likes it or not.
