One morning he awakens to find himself alone on a beached, wrecked steamship in the heart of Indian country. To save himself, he decides to run hundreds of miles through the rough Missouri Breaks and high plains back to Saint Louis. Day after day he runs, carrying no water and having no food. In nine days, he covers over 600 miles.Inspired by the actual accounts of his run in 1867, GOODS RUN chronicles the challenges, threats, and terrors he experiences along the way.

Fredericks African-American family suffers the aftermath of the Civil War, which still seems to be being fought on the Missouri River. To complicate matters, Good cannot speak. He must overcome much in this coming-of-age story. He runs not only from dangers, but also to find himself.
