The Colonel has to go away from Follyfoot for his health, leaving Slugger nominally in charge. A strange girl, Yaz, arrives, on her brown pony. Yaz spins them many yarns about why she is there, and Dora is suspicious about exactly what she’s done, and who she really is. After they discover the truth about Yaz, they have to prevent her committing a crime.
