He might not have the muscles, the mustache, or even the cool hat, but seventh-grader Blake Monroe has the heart of a cowboy. He just needs the chance to prove himself. So when the ghost of his rowdy Wild-West ancestor needs his help, Blake's ready to ride. They begin their search for a long-hidden ransom, a treasure that Gray, the ghost, is determined to find . . . only life's a little more confusing for him than during the 1800s.
The duo sets out on the trail, but their adventure is derailed when they realize they aren't the only ones after the ransom-Gray's old enemy, a deadly outlaw named Jack Wallace, is in pursuit. And that's when Blake realizes it is going to take more than a cool hat to get them out of this one.
