When double cousins Max Rawson and Carly Johnson with their siblings, Dorie, Chad, and Molly, arrive at their Grandparents’ ranch for an annual visit, they are delighted with a surprise request that changes everything. Grandpa asks them to uncover what happened to his Grandfather’s twin brother Zachary (their great-great-great-uncle), who left home to seek adventure and fortune in the West over 100 years before and was never heard from again. The only clue is a pocket watch Grandpa has that matches one Zachary carried.

Added to this real-life mystery is the sudden arrival of a new hired man, Slim, a quiet stranger with an unusual background. Will they be able to find what happened to Zach and his watch? Who is Slim? Can he be trusted? What is he hiding? As the cousins seek answers to these questions they learn valuable lessons about forgiveness and acceptance.
