Character traits



The main character, P.K. Pinkerton is a inquisitive 11 year old. He is the “double orphan” who is getting chased by a deadly desperado. I chose this word inquisitive because he wants to be a detective like his father and uncle. Also in the story he hears a Poker dealer say on page 217 “He had seen his first dad he couldn’t help the urge to ask.” He needs to know if this statement is true.

Spotlight on History


By Jack Feda

My first fact is on page 79 it says “The wanted poster in my hands showed a ugly man”. In the South these wanted posters were very popular to get criminales.


On page 68 in Deadly Desperados he takes a stage coach to Virginia City. there are no more stage coaches in modern days. The stage was drawn by horses.

In the book they have many saloons and now they just call them bars. But saloons are mostly in the South.


All of these examples talk about the South West and the spotlight on history is the settling days of the South. In these days there were many Chinese people living in the Nevada district. Also many mining companies tried to find gold and silver.

Place in time

1. In my book the town Dayton was founded. Dayton was founded in 1861.

2. There was a Pinkerton Detectives agency that was formed in 1850.

3. In the book there was a time where they talked about Mount Davidson. Mount davidson was named in 1852.

4. In the book there is a lot of mining being done in the book and mining was an ordinary job back in the settling days of the South

5. They talked about the indians and how P.K’s real mom was a indian.
